Fat Quarter Quick Makes

Authors: Juliet Bawden and Amanda Russell
Publisher: GMC Publications
Price: £12.99

Admit it – your sewing box is overflowing with discarded fabric remnants and fat quarters and larger offcuts of fabric that might just come in handy one day (but that day never comes).
Help is at hand in Fat Quarter Quick Makes with 25 fresh, contemporary sewing projects to transform your leftovers into purposeful items for the home and gifts, while simultaneously clearing out your sewing box. In this well laid-out colourful paperback, basic sewers and the more experienced can follow simple step-by-step instructions to quickly produce objects sorted into ‘Fashion & Accessories’,
‘Baby & Child’, ‘Out & About’, ‘Workroom’ and ‘Presents’. Although a machine is useful, it’s not necessary, and basic techniques are explained at the beginning. Photographic
illustrations take you through the process of each make, and templates are supplied at the back. Everyday items include a mobile phone cover, jewellery or paintbrush roll, simple stylish girl’s pillowcase dress, book or gym bag, pretty decorative flags and bunting, clever tent tidy, travel sewing kit and a knitting bag. Gift ideas include fabric
flowers, covered buttons, a passport cover, glasses case, make-up bag and an eye mask.
All beautifully simple, sustainable, creative and fun!
