Soft furnishings are an essential part of any home - even the most minimalist space needs bedlinen and window coverings. Colour, texture and pattern add warmth and comfort and can turn a home into a place that is decorative as well as functional. This stunning new book is full of practical information on how to create bright, fresh items for your home. There are over 50 stunning projects, all beautifully photographed and with an emphasis on simplicity and style. The projects are divided into four sections: Chairs, Tables, Beds and Windows, and cover a whole range of items. All the projects have clear step-by-step instructions and colour diagrams take you through the various stages, making them straightforward and simple, even for the beginner. There is a range of projects to suit all tastes and levels of skill, from simple cushion covers and table linen to interlined curtains and fitted bedcovers. A basics section at the front of the book takes you through all the essential techniques, from simple hems and seams to piping and buttonholes. The techniques are clearly explained and illustrated with step-by-step photographs making this book accessible to those new to sewing as well as more experienced stitchers.
