Created by the editors of Threads magazine, Quick to Make features sophisticated fashion and home accessories to craft or sew in minimal time. Each of the 34 smart and different designs makes a perfect gift or keepsake: Buttons, Bracelets & Pins; Embellishments; Wearables; Home Accessories; The "Quick to Make" column has been the most popular feature in Threads magazine since 1995, and this book collects the best of those articles in one volume. These small projects offer a great opportunity to try out new techniques, use up remnants from your scrap bag, or indulge in a special fabric that is too expensive to buy for a whole garment. Designed by regular Threads contributors, the projects are unique and challenging; the presentation is very sophisticated. There are patterns for the designs that need them, instructions for each project, and resource lists. Classy and clever, this is not your run-of-the-mill, quick-and-easy crafts book. Appeals to general crafters as well as sewers and needlecrafters. In full colour: with 170 colour photographs and 30 line drawings.
