Image of item
Vanessa Arbuthnott guides you through 50 projects with easy-to-follow illustrated instructions. The projects range from simple cushion covers for the novice stitcher, through to lined curtains with an array of different headings, blinds, bed throws, and table linen. There is also a chapter on accessories, such as a cook's apron, and table mats. Vanessa explains how each of her collections was developed, and what inspired her designs, and includes advice on selecting fabrics, using colour, cutting out, matching pattern repeats, piping, and hand-stitching, a techniques section covering the basic sewing skills you will need, as well as guidance on measuring for curtains and blinds, and on ways to hang them, as well as instructions for valances and an upholstered cornice.
