Overview

Half Yard Gifts: Easy sewing projects using left-over pieces of fabric by Debbie Shore, Marina Zherdeva

Half Yard Gifts is the latest title from sewing guru Debbie Shore, and the next book in her best-selling half yard series. It contains 22 projects to sew and give away, each made using less than half a yard of fabric. The book contains gifts for all your family and friends: the projects range from pincushions, bags and paperweights to aprons for budding chefs, kneeling pads for gardeners and tool belts for DIY-enthusiasts. The projects are made in a range of prints and styles and use a range of techniques: either follow each project closely, or adapt the size and fabric to suit the recipient. Debbie gives advice on how to customise the projects, so that you can create the perfect gift for your loved one.
This book would be perfect if you are new to sewing and need some guidance with the basic techniques and key information, as Debbies friendly advice and clear step-by-step photography make it a doddle. But its also packed with fresh ideas and designs that will inspire you even if youve been a keen sewer for many years and are looking for a way to use up your stash and create meaningful gifts that your loved ones will treasure.
