Book Description

1 Feb 2005
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soft Furnishings Chris Jeffreys 24 Mar 2010
Absolutley lovely book. Ideal for a beginner like me. Everything is very clear and well illustrated have completed my first project successfully with guidance from the book even if it is only a couple of cushion covers, they do look very professional. Would recommend this to anyone who would love to have a go but is unsure where to start. m

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, full of ideas! 20 Mar 2010
In this book you can find several different projects for your home, from curtains, to pillows, etc. The projects are easy to follow, the instructions are clear. The pictures are not that type of gorgeous and inspiring pictures that we're used to see in crafts books, mas they're clear and show the products well. If you want to make your own pillows, curtains, tablecloths, beddings, etc., I definitely recommend this book - you'll have a lot of different models to choose from!

I would recommend this book to anyone. It has easy to follow instructions and some good basic projects.
I bought it to help me make some curtains and cushion covers and it was the only book I could find that had good, easy to follow explanations and diagrams.
