McMillan Palgrave

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.
