We have two main aims. The first is to convince every woman that it doesn't take an artist or a professional to make all the lovely things pictured inside. The second is to give that professional touch to the woman who doesn't want her finished designs to look "homemade".
To fit in with your busy life, we've taken special care to introduce helpful working aids. We've made the instructions clear and concise and illustrated each technique with step-by-step colored photographs which can be used as lessons by beginners or for review by the more experienced.
We explain the why as well as the how so that you will not only be able to enjoy making the many items in the book, but you will be able to use these projects as a starting point for exploring the creative potential of needlwork and crafts. And where there is a short cut which won't jeopardize the end result, we tell you how to do it.
To eliminate the guesswork when buying yarns, we've given an actual-size photograph of the yarn used for each knitting and crochet feature. You can see exactly what the yarn looks like, so rather than searching for a specific yarn, you can use any yarn of similar weight and texture (see Tension Gauge, page 4).
The series builds into a family library of specially designed projects for all levels of skill and experience in knitting, crochet, sewing, embroidery, canvaswork, rugmaking, beading, weaving, macrame, leathercraft, and paper craft.
Volume by volume, Make It Yourself gives you a wide range of distinctive fashions and accessories, plus countless ideas which will add a unique and personal touch to your home decorating.
Together, these new and exciting projects will provide you and your family with many hours of creative pleasure and satisfaction.« less
