Making soft furnishings enables us to personalise and individualise our surroundings, adding that special finishing touch to our homes. Through the creative and innovative use of fabrics we can introduce an element of softness to any room. This book is a guide to creating the effect you have in mind. The first part of the book uses full-colour photographs, clear explanatory diagrams, and easy-to-follow instructions to explain how to make attractive soft furnishings such as scatter cushions, bolsters, and boxed cushions. Part two looks at the many different types of covers for the bedroom. It describes how to decorate side tables with drape cloths, and how to make duvet covers, bedspreads and quilts. The final section explains clearly the techniques that are needed to create all the design ideas that are mentioned throughout the book including measuring and calculating fabric requirements and sewing pin tucks and bias binding.
