Sew Your Own Soft Furnishings
By

Rating
Soft furnishings add colour, texture and style to our rooms; they insulate our homes, adding much needed warmth and comfort. Bedrooms in particular contain a large amount of soft furnishings, and matching bed-linen to other furnishings, such as wallpaper, curtains and chairs, gives a room a cohesive look, and its own particular character. Table linen protects furniture from spills and stains, and can be used effectively to add accent colours to a room's scheme. Choosing to make your own soft furnishings is immensely satisfying; not only can you choose your own colour schemes, fabric types and trims, but these furnishings can usually be made at a fraction of the cost of shop-bought items. This volume contains over 35 beautifully tailored projects to make. There are so many ways to dress a bed, with traditional patchwork quilts, modern duvets and colourful throws, and many of these items can be made quickly and easily. For the dining area, choose from elegant tablecloths, quilted placemats, or a stylish beaded applique tablerunner. There are ideas as well to co-ordinate chair covers with table decor. Whatever your level of ability, this book contains plenty of projects to inspire your imagination to beautify your home.
