In this book, you'll find 20 projects featuring classic boutis designs for handbags and cases, pillows, baby clothes, placemats, photo album covers, and more. Also included are a basic boutis lesson, with step-by-step instructions for every part of the process, and full-size pullout patterns for every project.

Mar 14

With just a few simple stitches and a little know-how, you can create a myriad of beautiful items for the home using the traditional technique from the south of France. Boutis is a form of quilting, much like Trapunto, where the two layers of fabric are stitched together with a design which is then padded out with thick cotton thread. The effects are decorative and hardwearing and they are shown in all their glory in this book. It features twenty projects including cushions, bags, table linen, baby bootees and cot quilt amongst many others. The book contains full instructions on how to work Boutis with clear diagrams and pull-out pattern sheet.
