This is aimed at the beginner sewer who wants to make soft furnishings for the home with a minimum of skill and on a slim budget. A series of projects progressing in difficulty guides the reader through basic skills and techniques, starting with simple cushions, and moving up through throws and bedspreads, basic curtains, blinds and tablecloths into easy upholstery such as sofa and armchair covers, and screens. The projects require a basic sewing machine but no particular experience or previous skill. The idea is to recycle and renew, creating lovely new things for the house from old clothes, curtains, sheets or skirts, by cutting them up, combining and restructuring them or embellishing them with new materials and trimmings. Projects take approximately a weekend and can be done cheaply with the emphasis on personalising and creating something unique. A new technique will be introduced into each project such as beading, making trimmings and simple print techniques, as well as an optional extra idea for embellishing at the end for the more adventurous.

Promotional Information

Beautifully illustrated with both step-by-step sequences and finished pieces. Six very simple projects are clearly explained, with embellishments for the more adventurous. Apart from basic knowledge of a sewing machine, no previous experience is needed.
