The projects in this book range from greeting cards to shopper “tote” bags, to a “starter” quilt, which is easy to piece together; the perfect place to start for your first quilt perhaps? There are cushions for the living room, a doorstop, slippers to keep your feet warm and looking great, a cute apron for baking, a wall tidy to hide away bits and pieces in your bedroom or office—something for every room and every occasion. While the projects are straightforward and easy to follow if you are new to sewing, they are also sure to appeal to the more experienced sewer, with lots of possibilities for adapting the ideas to make your own. Creating great textile projects doesn’t have to be complicated or time consuming. It is all about choosing the right fabrics and using them in a simple and effective way to create something that is both striking to look at, and practical to use in everyday life.
