Crafters and fashion lovers will be lining up to get their hands on the very first sewing book from internationally popular and uber-stylish textile brand Liberty. Brimming with lavish photographs of bold, graphic fabrics, The Liberty Book of Home Sewing offers 25 irresistible and easy-to-make projects that allow readers to incorporate a touch of Liberty elegance into their home. Simple enough for beginners, the projects range from feminine totes and aprons to handy pincushions and book covers, full-sized quilts, chic throws, plush cushions, and more. With color step-by-step illustrations, detailed instructions, and plenty of inspiration, plus an exquisite fabric cover, this enchantingly beautiful book will be treasured by longtime Liberty fans and young crafters alike.
"Ganderton straddles a line between a pattern book and a love letter to Liberty Art Fabrics in the venerable textile company's first-ever home sewing book. Each project calls for a specific print from their gorgeous collections, but replacing the Liberty fabric with similar prints would still make this a solid book of basic to intermediate sewing projects. Alongside the instructions are helpful color drawings to illustrate the process of each step. Many also contain ideas for slightly increasing the complexity if desired. Among the projects for the home are quilts, pillows, bags, aprons and accents. Although some knowledge of sewing is expected in the instructions, the final section of the book also provides drawings and explanations of basic seams, hand stitching, and other processes and terms. The work succeeds as both a pictorial homage to Liberty and a guide to cute, accessible projects. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
