Synopsis: This guide is aimed at the beginning sewer who wants to make soft furnishings for the home on a slim budget by recycling, renewing and repurposing materials to create wonderful personalized things for the home from old clothes, curtains, sheets or skirts, by cutting them up, combining and restructuring them or embellishing them with new materials and trimmings. The book provides a series of weekend-long projects progressing in difficulty from simple cushions to bedspreads to tablecloths and even easy upholstery for sofas and armchairs. A new technique is introduced into each project such as beading, making trimmings and simple print techniques as well as optional ideas for embellishing for the more adventurous. Each project requires only a basic sewing machine but no particular experience or previous skill.
