Over 20 Beautiful Projects for the Home.
Cushions are the ideal way to instantly brighten up a room without having to extensively redecorate - they can be use to adorn a sofa, give a coordinated feel to a room or to make a witty statement. Made from scraps in your work basket or from inexpensive remnants, you can add the finishing touch to your home or make a beautiful gift in the space of an afternoon. Every room can benefit from the addition of cushions, whether it is a patchwork gingham cushion for the kitchen, a canvas and rope cushion for the bathroom or a profusion of luxurious silk and organza cushions for the bedroom.
This book presents over 20 original designs and each project is clearly shown step-by-step, so you know exactly what you will need to do at each stage. All stitches and techniques used in the projects are explained in full and easy-to-trace templates for all the designs are also included.
Whatever the style of your home, you will find a project to suit it: from bright contemporary motifs in wool or velvet to classical cushions in velvet or silk and more traditional patchwork and quilted designs. Children will love the bright woollen flower-decorated cushions and appliqued tea-cup cushion, while the batik cushion or velvet bolster will appeal to more sophisticated tastes. If it is pure comfort you are seeking, the woollen cushions will make your bedroom feel warm and cosy.
Combining practical advice with innovative designs, 'Cushions' is the ideal way to add comfort and style to every room in the house.
