I love that this book isn’t just for sewing cushions.
It gives creative and unique ideas for covering stools, crates and even a coffee table to make something useful and beautiful for your home and garden.
Up cycling is key, and using vintage fabrics give a new look to something that may have otherwise been thrown away.
Full instructions are given and are easy to understand, with handy hints and tips to give your new piece of furniture a professional finish.
The technique guide is full of information and gives tuition of covering buttons and crochet.
There is no reason why a beginner cannot use this book, it is a useful guide for incorporating your own individual style.
It is a beautiful book to look at, the photography is a stunning mood board.
Take a Seat is a useful and handy craft book for a tailor made design.
