Overview

Even if you have only a few hours to spare, you can create unique and stylish accessories to wear or to decorate your home. These professional looking, one-of-a-kind treasures are as fashionable as they are practical. All of the basic sewing information is here. If you're a beginner, try your hand at panel curtains so simple they're absolutely foolproof -- a perfect first project -- before moving on to dozens of slightly more advanced, but still easy, designs.

Add a little color to your porch or patio by sprucing up wicker furniture with a set of splendid chair seats in the fabric of your choice. Give new life to tired throw pillows by sewing them with colorful, tasseled slip-covers. Whip up a luxurious-looking toiletry bag from quilted cotton or silk shantung. And if you're feeling more adventurous, make a perky, flat-bottomed purse trimmed with bias-covered piping and handles. Or, use any leftover material to fashion a soft, lovely eyeglass case. Your homemade keepsakes will also make wonderful gifts. Surprise someone close to you with an elegant jewelry bag crafted from silks and satins. Wrap a bottle of wine in a hand-sewn organza bag for a special hostess gift. An adorable, three-dimensional animal bib with matching burp cloth -- ideal shower presents -- will let any new mother know that she is truly loved. You will be proud to show and share the exciting projects you've made, from start to finish, each one in a single afternoon.

    What a great addition to my sewing library!

    This book is beautiful. The instructions are easy to follow and understand. I love the idea of making things to give to my family and friends. Even my friends who sew were sparked by the cute sewing projects.
