Learn to sew and practice your new skills on 25 projects

Learn to sew and practice your new skills on 25 projects

Emma Hardy has been sewing since she was a child, graduating from making doll’s clothes by hand to mastering a sewing machine, and sewing both for herself and for the home. To help you get started, she has gathered together 25 simple projects that are quick and easy to make, using basic hand and machine sewing skills. Before you begin, a fully illustrated techniques section teaches you everything you need to know to complete the projects, from basting to hemming. Once you’ve mastered the basics, you can try your hand at sewing accessories for the home, including curtains and pillow covers, a table runner, place mats and napkins for the dinner table, or a tea cozy and a pan holder for the kitchen. Around the rest of the house, you can keep things tidy with a drawstring toy bag, and even make your own ironing board cover. Discover how simple it can be to sew unique items for the home, using your own selection of fabrics and trimmings, and you’ll soon be hooked on sewing.
