What Reviewers Are Saying
Vintage has maintained its status as a theme that everyone loves. Debbie takes vintage style and makes 23 projects for the home and for gifts. Accessories include pillow covers, bags, dressing table covers, tea coy, tray covers and cake frills and Christmas-themed projects too. You'll find all the sewing techniques you need to know at the front of the book, including mitred corners. My favourite projects are the pillow, floral wreath, bucket bag, posy, journal cover, Xmas stocking and cottages. Lots of lace and neutral fabrics. Small projects are quick to make and add a homely touch. This book will be a big hit with its desirable projects and easy to follow instructions. * Yarnsandfabrics.co.uk * Anybody who sews is going to be left with lots of oddments which appear to be too small to be useful. But all you need is half a yard (or less) to make twenty-three beautiful vintage items with this useful book.
This is a bestselling title for Search Press and I am not surprised. Make useful and very giftable pieces using not only oddments of fabric but also old doyleys, buttons, lace and more. Raid the loft or visit junk shops and jumble sales to add to your stash and you will have enough to make anything in this book. The author recommends a simple entry level computer machine with its fancy stitches but any machine will do, and apart from that you have everything you need if you sew. Before the projects there are a few techniques to learn if you don't already know how such as basic hand embroidery stitches, bias binding, French seams, fitting magnetic clasps etc. All these have plenty of large captioned photographs which make this book ideal for anybody who knows the basics but has not had a lot of sewing experience. Each project features a large photo of the item in situ plus a list of what you need, size and several steps with photographs. There are the usual cushion covers, bunting, pincushion, bags and mats but also more unusual (but useful) things like a peg bag, letter holder, jar wraps, advent calendar and a cake frill. All are in the soft muted colors you would expect from vintage style projects but if your tastes and stash are more modern the items could equally be made up in brighter shades with different trims. This is an ideal book for anybody who wants to make things for their home or to give as gifts or to charity sales. User friendly and attractive. * myshelf.com *
