There is something extra special about the things that we have taken the time to make by hand, carefully stitching them with patience and originality. And with modern life having taken a nostalgic twist, many of us have been left wishing we had paid more attention when our grannies offered to teach us how to knit, crochet, embroider and sew. But take heart, it is never too late to learn. Home Sewn Home teaches you how to make a variety of practical handmade items to really make your house a home. The book includes 20 simple sewing projects suitable for beginners, along with a basic tools and techniques section carefully outlining the fundamental skills and equipment required, as well as offering advice on how to source the right materials to achieve an authentic vintage feel. The projects are divided into four chapters reflecting the key areas of the home - the living room, kitchen and utility, bedroom, bathroom - and together they provide a delightful mix of items that the whole family can enjoy. Projects include: jewellery roll, bath cap, cushion, doorstop, laundry bag, pyjama case, eye mask, shoe bag, pretty apron, padded coat hanger, butcher's apron, coffee cozy, hairstyling bag, ironing board cover, oven gloves, plastic bag keeper, peg bag, screen cover and wash bag.
