Most crafters are guaranteed
to have a stash of lovingly collected fabric scraps and off cuts hoarded away
in anticipation of the perfect project. However, in reality many crafters need
inspiration as to what they can actually make with these pieces of fabric, and
end up watching guiltily as their stash grows ever larger and more
disorganised. Pretty Birds has now provided the perfect answer to what to do
with your stash.
More elegant than cutesy, Pretty Birds is aimed at the young and hip end of the hobby crafts readership, offering creative inspiration and easy to follow tutorials that are suitable for sewers of all levels. Crafters will fall in love with the charmingly simple illustrations, which will have them diving straight into their fabric stash in order to recreate each whimsical character for themselves. In addition to the book’s core fabric projects, inspiration and advice is also offered for transforming each into a useful and original household item, such as a chunky doorstopper or handy cable tidy pouch. A selection of standard pattern templates for items such as these is included at the back of the book, providing readers with a valuable additional resource.
