    DescriptionCushions are a great way of brightening up a room and giving it your own personal touch. They can be luxuriously decadent or homely and comforting; inject colour and fun into your life, or be soft and seductive. Whatever your style, Debbie Shore has a cushion cover that is perfect for you. In this sumptuous book, there are twenty-six gorgeous designs to choose from, with ideas and inspiration for many more, all with clear, step-by-step photographs and no-fuss, easy-to-follow instructions. Debbie's designs have a fresh, contemporary appeal, and you will be amazed at how easy they are to make. And you don't have to spend a fortune either. You can achieve a designer look at a fraction of the price you'd pay in the shops, and with her firm belief in recycling, Debbie has incorporated children's old clothes, grown-out-of jeans, pretty dress fabric, unused table-cloths or even last year's bedding into many of her designs. Be inspired - add your own flair and individuality to the cushion covers you make and, before you know it, you will be designing cushions of your own!

    Author Information
    Debbie Shore started her career as one of the first ever live children's television presenters and since then has appeared regularly on television both as an actress and selling products on a shopping channel. Debbie has also hosted live fashion shows with a major UK fashion store, produces her own range of instructional DVDs and writes a regular column for a popular sewing magazine. Her interest in sewing started when, as a child, her mother taught her how to sew, and after many years of trial and error she has taught herself how to make professional-looking soft furnishings using simple techniques that she has developed herself. Realising, over the years, that things she finds easy to create are difficult for many people, she decided to share her design ideas, methods, hints and tips by writing a book. Debbie lives in Northamptonshire with her husband and a menagerie of animals that includes dogs, cats and ducks!
    Review quote
    Brighten up your home with a whole range of room-transforming pillows and cushions. With no patterns and lots of foolproof ways of doing things you don't need too much sewing knowledge to make some attractive and gift quality soft furnishings. This book is all about having fun while sewing and getting the finished product together as simply and quickly as possible. There are no patterns to resize on your computer or copier, instead measure your cushion bat and follow the instructions. This makes perfect sense as I have realized during my own cushion making forays that there is no such thing as a standard size bat. You will also get plenty of opportunities to use up not only scraps of fabric, trimmings, ribbon and buttons but also old baby clothes, cardigans and more. Discover a very simple way of putting in a zip, how to avoid actually having to do this at all (envelope backs) and a "cheat's way" of making an Oxford cushion cover. There are pleats, felt flowers, ribbon weaving, patchwork and gathered frills to adorn your work and in general a happy, sunny feel about the whole book. It made me want to make cushions and I don't even need any so I can recommend this to anybody who wants to have a go at this type of thing and thinks that it might be too difficult for them.-Myshelf.com Making cushion covers are a great way of revamping your home, and they are a good project for learner sewists to start with. This book features 26 designs of varying complexity and incorporating different techniques such as piping, ruffles, applique, shirring & patchwork. I think this book would be ideal if you wanted to learn/practice new techniques. The introduction section covers equipment, trimmings, different stitches and how to fit a zip. The projects themselves have step by steps instructions with photos for almost every stage too, ideal for people like me who like a visual guide.-sewingdirectory.co.uk Cushions brighten up any room and provide a personal touch. Debbie Shore provides a selection of 26 designs to choose from with ideas and inspiration for many more, all with clear step-by-step photographs and easy to follow instructions. Be inspired and make cushion covers for living room, bedroom and kitchen.-Craft Focus Cushions brighten up any room, give it a personal touch and you don't have to spend a fortune. There are 26 gorgeous designs with ideas and inspiration for many more, all with step-by-step photos and easy-to-follow instructions. You can achieve a designer look at a fraction of the price you'd pay in the shops. With a firm belief in recycling, Debbie has incorporated old clothes, jeans, dress fabric, tablecloths and even bedding into many of her designs.-Machine Knitting Monthly Add the perfect finishing touch to your home with these stylish cushion covers. This book includes twenty-six designs ranging from luxurious looks for the living room, to comforting designs for the bedroom. Useful hints and tips ensure that you won't get stuck, simply follow the clear step-by-step guides and recline with pride on the cushions you have crafted.-Sewing World My mum, Sue, was particularly happy about me receiving this book as she is a fan of Debbie Shore who she watches on a shopping channel. Sue finds Debbie's hints and tips practical and invaluable when it comes to all types of sewing, not just cushion covers, and this book is full of these. There are many clever ideas all with step by step instructions which can be used for the projects in the book or adapted for your own projects. Any beginner or experienced sewer would find this book a great addition to their collection.-makeandcraft.com: BakingAitch
