Brighten up your boudoir with twenty sewing projects! Stitch magazine readers can't get enough of pillows and other home-decor accessories. Perhaps it's because home-decor items are among the most accessible of sewing projects: quick to make, no fitting required, and fun to show off. And what better place to use and showcase these items than where you lay your head? Best of Stitch: Beautiful Bedrooms brings together a colorful, sensory feast of favorite and fresh projects that are easy on the eye and just a little bit sultry. You will learn new skills and find creative ways to make your sleeping quarters a showplace for handmade items. The book includes twenty projects as well as tips and sidebars on special techniques and troubleshooting advice for construction, handstitching, working with fabrics, and embellishing. A "Sewing Basics" reference section at the back of the book covers the skills necessary for creating each project.
Most books focusing on bedroom based projects are littered with quilts and pillows but Beautiful Bedrooms includes more of the little things as well, eg slippers, eye mask and robe. A great book with very attainable results.
