Make & Mend : A Guide to Recycling Clothes and Fabrics Paperback


Welcome to Make & Mend! This book shows how, with a little knowledge and a little creativity, you can make a wide range of fantastic items from those old clothes and fabrics you can't bear to throw away.

Whether it's a cushion cover from a coat, a tote bag from a torn dress or a neck tie from a negligee, this book will show you how to make it.

A bit of know-how and a few ideas, and you can create gorgeous items with a completely personal stamp.

Packed full of projects, from aprons to curtains, bags to jewellery, we show you how to turn a bag of scraps into wearable, beautiful and personalised items.

Each project offers a step-by-step guide to making successful pieces, as well as a wealth of information and encouragement to be as creative as possible and push your skills in a direction you might never have thought of.

Included is a list of basic equipment, illustrations, tips and advice as well as a thorough grounding in the basics of hand and machine sewing, and a fully stocked resources section.

Each project is designed and illustrated to be as fun, interesting and as beautiful as possible. And the best bit made it yourself!Contents: Introduction; Part 1 Equipment; Part 2 Techniques; Part 3 Projects; Making scarves; Making bags; Making skirts; Making household items; Making cushions; Making curtains; Creating personalised gifts; Making jewellery; Part 4 Where to buy; Index
