Product description

Create beautiful accessories to enhance your home using stunningly simple but incredibly effective techniques by creative crafter Tone Finnanger. A subtle colour palette and lovable Tilda designs combine to create a fresh and fun collection of over 35 projects. Easy-to-follow instructions, gorgeous colour photos and delightful illustrations accompany each project, along with actual-size templates that will ensure wonderful results. With pretty homestyle ideas for the entire home from the kitchen to children's bedrooms, everyone will find a project they adore. Tone Finnanger begins by breaking down the basics: fabrics and materials, techniques such as embroidery and stitching and wrong side appliques, transferring patterns and creating stuffed figures with faces and fancy hairdos. Fabulous projects are divided into sections of the home: The Entrance Hall that includes pretty felted door mats and lavender-scented shoe hearts; The Kitchen that includes cute cats and fragrant strawberries; The Dining Room that includes decorative table mats and a pretty cafetiere cosy; The Living Room that includes an extravagant tapestry and sweet house angels; The Conservatory that includes happy horses and garden angels; The Hobby Room that includes vintage-style pin cushions and fabric bags and boxes; The Bathroom that includes practical wall pouches and a make-up bag; The Bedroom that includes a woollen felt hot water bottle and handy sleeping masks; The Children's Room that includes an array of figures from the book such as stumpy-legged dogs and good-natured teddy bears. You will fall in love with all of these charming projects. Make your house a home with this irresistible collection of simple hand-sewn accessories.

this is one of the best from Finnanger, the world of Tilda and friends it's absolutely amazing!
i'm so happy with my choice and purchase.

By Linda 16 Mar 2009 5

This book is scrumptiousness on pages. It's beautiful to look at, inspiring for creativity and achievable for most people.
I find the instructions quite easy to understand, I do however have sewing experience for soft toys and home furnishings. The instructive pictures help the clarity of the written instructions.
There are even useful websites in the back to help you find the matching fabrics.
This book is defiantly worthy of its shelf space, a keeper.

By a Book Depository customer 10 Dec 2008 3

"This book is without a doubt an extremely delicious eye candy but the instructions and illustrations are a real pain. I wanted to do the bag and I had to read it many many times before I could even begin to understand it. Even my husband who builds computer can't make head or tails of the instructions (that's how desperate I got). Sewing isn't rocket science but reading (as opposed to just looking) this book felt like it. If it wasn't for the pictures, I'd give this book 1 star for effort. I wish people who write craft books would just understand that the instructions they write need to be well crafted too."
