With Home Decor Sewing 101, even you can create impressive window treatments, luxurious bed linens, decorator pillows, and other decor furnishings-and in just a few hours. Home Decor Sewing 101 makes it easy with a complete basics section, lots of tips, and 20 step-by-step projects illustrated with more than 300 close-up colour photographs. Each project introduces several new techniques and skills. For example, the versatile knife-edge pillow teaches how to set and press seams and sew perfect corners. A Reece throw in luscious sherbet colours demonstrates using a rotary cutter and mat, sewing raw-edged appliques, and cutting fringe. The learning is painless and fun, and the results are real decor items like a cushy floor pillow, an elegant banded tablecloth, a valance, a shower curtain, and a duvet cover. Many homeowners want to learn basic decor sewing because they're dissatisfied with the limited options offered by ready-made items but are shocked by the cost of custom ones. Luckily, sewing for the home is a great place to start, as there are no patterns, fitting, zippers, or sleeves.
