Hundreds of decorating ideas! Inviting, personalized rooms range from rustic and country to contemporary and elegant, with inspiring photos and easy-to-follow how-tos for window and wall coverings, table toppers, furniture and bed covers, pillows, napkins and accessories. Easy-no-sew techniques combine with serger finishes, decorative threads and simple sewing.
The home decorating projects in this book are far from intimidating. Some are almost instant. Many start with fabric rectangles or squares sewn together with simple, straight seaming and then are finished on the machine or serger. Whether simple or slightly more involved, we guide you through each project, highlighting where serging makes the project faster, easier, more durable, or more creative. We also highlight quick projects.
Pick a whole room, a corner of a room, or just a placemat or pillow, then make it your own!
