"Covering everything from simple pillows to upholstered chair covers, this inspiring guide shows you how to transform your living spaces with 50 stylish sewing projects. The makes range from a lampshade for the novice stitcher, through to lined drapes with an array of different headings and blinds, as well as bed afghans and table linen. There is also a chapter on accessories, such as a cook's apron, a tote bag, and tablemats, which would all be a great starting point if you want to brush up on your skills before tackling a larger project. Before you begin, designer Vanessa Arbuthnott explains how each of her collections was developed and provides plenty of guidance on selecting fabrics, using color, and accurate measuring and cutting. Whether you're an expert crafter or are just starting out, Sewing for the Home includes all the know-how you'll need to create stunning and unique home furnishings and decorations."--, provided by publisher
