    DescriptionExpert crafter and lover of Scandinavian design Clare Youngs presents a stunning collection of home wares, gifts, accessories, bags, clothes and more to stitch. Fans of the clean, elegant lines of traditional Scandinavian style are sure to be inspired by the 35 sewing projects in this book. Incorporating the finest elements of Scandinavian crafting traditions, inspiration is taken from a range of backgrounds including classic folk art and local needlework, as well as more contemporary sources. These delightful designs, each with clear step-by-step instructions and beautiful photography, will have you itching to get stitching. Working with a wide variety of fabrics, there are adorable fleece and felt baby booties finished with French knots to make, or use classic gingham or stripes to put together an apron, coat hanger cover and laundry bag. Also included in this title are ideas for projects using recycled materials, plus ways to use up the scraps in your sewing box. A range of techniques are explored as well, including applique for a cushion cover, cross-stitched bed linen, patchwork for a quilt, embroidery on Christmas decorations and more. Simplicity is always at the heart of Clare's designs, and the clear instructions and step-by-step artworks mean anyone can have a go, and will be surprised how quickly beautiful pieces can be made. There's also a how-to section that explains any stitch, knot and join you might need.
