Made at home encapsulates Lisa Stickley's particular brand of old-fashioned charm that is perfectly in tune with the current back-to-basics mood, reinterpreting home items for the modern-day sewer. Ranging from simple cushions to comfy bed covers, made at home covers all the core sewing projects you may need to furnish your home, whether you are a first-time buyer or long-term homeowner. Most of the projects require minimal sewing skills and are possible to make in a weekend, so they are realistically archievable even for the inexperienced home sewer.
The basics section introduces all the necessary sewing skills and then subsequent projects, from napkins to bedspreads, see those techniques put into practice. Step-by-step instructions with accompanying illustrations take you through each stage of a project with everything fully explained. Discover how to measure and cut pattern templates, stitch hems, finish seams and hand sew buttonholes whilst making gorgeous items for your own home.
