5.0 out of 5 stars That covers it ..., 9 July 2006
This review is from: Cushions and Covers: A Step-by-step Guide to Creative Soft Furnishings (Practical Home Decorating) (Hardcover)
If you want a concise, yet comprehensive reference guide to everything from sofa cushions to sofa drapes and from table cloths to table covers, look no further: Gina Moore's book will show you all you need to know. There are short, but very informative chapters on assessing and measuring your furniture, choosing the right colours and fabrics, etc., as well as nicely illustrated, easy-to-follow instructions for a variety of stitches and seams. The last two thirds of the book are dedicated to individual projects. Here again, everything is illustrated with step-by-step photographs, and all instructions are clearly written und easy to understand, even for sewing novices. Most importantly, though, all projects serve as templates, too, and can effortlessly be adapted to suit personal needs and tastes.

Gina Moore manages to make cushion and cover making look easy and fun, offers a host of ideas to the experienced and the beginner alike, and supplies the reader with enough inspiration to turn it into a fully-fledged hobby (if it isn't already.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Good close-up pictures and general instructions, 26 Aug. 2014

This review is from: Cushions and Covers: A Step-by-step Guide to Creative Soft Furnishings (Practical Home Decorating) (Hardcover)
Good close-up pictures and general instructions. All an experienced sewer would need but not enough detail for a sewing beginner. Projects include different types of cushions, loose chair covers, throws, bed covers and quilts, tablecloths.There is help with measuring and lists of what is needed for each project but tends to assume sewer knows about making full-scale pattern pieces, how to lay them on the fabric for cutting out and different sewing techniques.

This review is from: Cushions and Covers: A Step-by-step Guide to Creative Soft Furnishings (Practical Home Decorating) (Hardcover)
Well worth having. The explanations of how to make the various items are very clear, for example the way to work out the correct width needed for the strips of cloth for bias binding.
