Product description

Gather that bundle of fabric scraps, and get ready to stitch, embroider, applique, and quilt. This combination of simple sewing techniques and throwaway remnants adds up to inexpensive, clever, and practical things to use throughout your household. Each project takes a color or motif as a theme, and is illustrated with a beautiful color photograph, plus templates and patterns, information on fabrics, and instructions on techniques and stitches. Fashion a sunflower tea cosy or place mats out of an old woolen blanket. Crazy cats, cut out of cotton, make purr-fect doorstops and pictures. Have an old coat hanger, buttons, and material? Then you've got a peg or laundry bag. Try super "Tex Mex" shopping bags, a sweetcorn apron, cactus computer cover, and herb bags with corn and chile peppers. Plus: ideas for cards, invitations, keepsakes, picnic sets, and so many other fabulous items!
