Ideal for beginners,
This review is from: Making Cushion Covers (Paperback)
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.
