This is an excellent first book from Debbie with some stunning cushions that would grace any home. Wonderful photography with extremely clear instructions without any jargon. There are some wonderful ideas to use up your scrap fabrics and for beginners there is an excellent glossary at the back, also has plenty of tips in each section. It is very well written and makes you feel as if you have a friend talking you through each step. A great accompaniment to Debbie's DVDs. I cannot praise this book highly enough and look forward to Debbie's next one.

I purchased this book as I am a 'rusty' sewer and wanted a refresher book. I chose this book as I has seen Debbie demonstrate sewing techniques on TV and she explained everything in a jargon free language. I have not been disappointed.. the book is great, so much so I bought another one for my daughter who is learning to sew!

Wow what a fab book. So full of fresh modern ideas to brighten your home using easy techniques with beautiful effects.

You can use any fabrics to make these projects even old duvet covers etc. In todays society designer style cushions are so expensive to buy and i for one, will not spend money on something like that.. but this book has made it possible to make my own individual and unique cushoins and people who see them love them.

I would encourage a complete novice sewer to purchase this book... it has easy to follow instrutions and no technical gargon.. just plain english.... and step by step colour photographs too.

I can promise you will be delighted with this book.

Now i can't stop to write anymore... i'm off to make a couple of cushions for the bedroom :)

Making cushion covers are a great way of revamping your home, and they are a good project for learner sewists to start with. This book features 26 designs of varying complexity and incorporating different techniques such as piping, ruffles, appliqué, shirring & patchwork. I think this book would be ideal if you wanted to learn/practice new techniques.

The introduction section covers equipment, trimmings, different stitches and how to fit a zip. The projects themselves have step by steps instructions with photos for almost every stage too, ideal for people like me who like a visual guide.

My one criticism of this book is that the lighting is pretty dark in some of the photos, making some of them are quite dark & gloomy and not showing the cushions off as well as they could. It's the one thing which brings down an otherwise good project book.

the books is full of exciting projects and so helpful with ideas and how to make it, use it along with Debbie Shore DVDs its a must for any sewer to keep in there library.

Debbie Shore has a passion for sewing and that comes across in her DVDs and now her book, well worth every penny, can't wait to see whats next, Every things she makes is from the heart.

Wether its from her book, her DVds and her you tube videos (Thimble Lane) the scope of her skill is brilliant and enjoyable to watch.

I have been sewing for about 2 years but do not think of myself as an expert yet. I am not so great with fine finishing and fiddly work like ruffles. I can do pretty good cushions but was looking for something to take my work to the next level. I came across this book and saw very good reviews.
When I had a quick flick through I was a bit disappointed because it didn't suit my purpose. THIS IS VERY BASIC LEVEL SEWING AND IDEAS. If you are quite good and have watched lots of You-Tube Vids do not buy this book. Its nice enough but its very beginner level and there are about a handful of ideas (a little outdated to be honest) and a lot of round cushion thingies. If you're in need of lots of ideas and stuff which is much more modern and eclectic, don't buy this. Have another search, it may be worthwhile paying a little more for a bigger, better book for yourself.

Received my book with thanks to Amazons speedy delivery.

What can i say, Its a lovely book, full of ideas and inspiration. I recommend you order the book, and when it arrives, sit in your chair, with a cuppa, and while away an hour or two. Its full of fresh and modern ideas on to spruce up any room in your house, quickly, easily and cheaply. It is also a fun way to learn all kinds of sewing machine techniques that will help you when making just about anything.

Dont delay buy it today you wont be sorry.
