FROM THE PUBLISHER
Give your home a professionally decorated look inexpensively and easily. Nothing beats the pleasure of sewing plump pillows, beautiful curtains, spectacular bedding, and other soft furnishings for every room. And, when you have an Expert's guidance to sewing basics, design techniques, and a variety of attractive treatments for every room, decorating becomes a fun--not daunting--process. Be creative: see how simple it is to choose exactly the fabrics you want and create the style you've yearned for. Whether you prefer large floral patterns, country checks and bold stripes, deep rich colors and opulent designs, tribal motifs or simple earth tones, you won't have to make compromises. Any of these projects, shown in full color, would look fantastic: a Bishop's Sleeve Curtain; Mock Cornice Valance; Ruffled Bedskirts and Shams; Duvet Cover with Tie Closure; Reversible Tablecloth with Contrasting Border; hand-stitched decorative pillows; and more. It's your ticket to acquiring your dream décor.
