Everyone loves pillows, whether cushions on couches, fluffy bed pillows, or satin pillow sachets. The editors of Country Living offer advice on how to create custom-made pillows -- with the great look and quality of those found in stores, but for a lot less money. And Country Living Handmade Pillows offers far more than just the standard bed and sofa pillows: Here are herbal pillows, eye pillows, travel pillows, satin bridal pillows, and celebratory holiday pillows. This book guides readers through the steps necessary to make new pillows from "found" materials, such as vintage laces, handkerchiefs, and doilies.
Country Living Handmade Pillows includes many no-sew ideas for quick and easy projects; for the more committed, a chapter on sewing basics reveals the finishing touches that make pillows even more special: tassels, monogramming, trimmings, and more.
Custom-make your own luxurious cushions, perhaps using such treasures as vintage laces, handkerchiefs, and doilies. Some dont even require sewing; other, more elaborate projects include tassels, monograms, and trimming. Try herbal pillows, eye pillows, travel pillows, satin bridal pillows, and pillows for holidays.
