Best of Stitch: Beautiful Bedrooms

in Books

Brighten up your boudoir with 20 sewing projects!

Stitch readers can't get enough of pillows and other home décor accessories. Perhaps it's because home décor items are among the most accessible of sewing projects: quick to make, no fitting required, and fun to show off. And what better place to use and showcase these items than where you lay your head? Best of Stitch: Beautiful Bedrooms will bring together a colorful, sensory feast of favorite and fresh projects that are easy on the eye and just a little bit sultry. Readers will learn new skills and find creative ways to make their sleeping quarters a showplace for handmade items. The book will include 5 new and 15 repurposed magazine projects as well as sidebars and tip boxes on specific techniques that are used in the projects, offering tips and troubleshooting advice for construction, hand stitching, working with fabrics, and embellishing. A "Sewing Basics" reference section at the back of the book covers sewing skills necessary for creating all projects.
