Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The prospect of confronting a tissue-paper pattern in the hopes of producing a finished garment or household item can be quite daunting. But by anticipating, and answering, every question a beginner could possibly ask--from "How do I cut fabric?" to "How do I miter a corner?"--this completely illustrated guide teaches everything you need to know to fashion beautiful handcrafted goods. Best of all, once you have finished each lesson--laying out patterns, hemming, putting in zippers, and so on--you have a fabulous completed project to show for your efforts. For example, by following the instructions on sewing a seam, you create a beautiful table runner; by learning to make buttonholes, you wind up with a tapestry-style handbag; other lessons result in a house full of fabulous throw pillows, curtains, and more decorative objects. With outcomes like these, your first time sewing won't be your last!
