This is the book for you if you are looking for basic knowledge about how to sew materials together to create pretty and useful items for your home.
Most of the items described can be machine-sewn. The entry threshold for these projects is low, as the book is aimed mainly at new beginners, though it can also be a source of new inspiration for experienced sewers who might learn some clever new techniques.
The book is illustrated throughout with pictures and step-by-step drawings, and it explains clearly what materials and equipment you need to keep things simple and make learning to sew a pleasure.
You will find patterns and instructions for large floor-cushions, sofa-cushions, covers for children's beds and push-chairs, big patchwork rugs, bags and handbags. Many of these things are sewn using new fabric, but old shirts can also find new life in rugs, cushions and much else.
