I haven't completed many sewing projects before so I have found this book a wealth of information. This book goes through many of the basics that other books seem to forget. It takes you through everything from how the pattern appears on a piece of fabric to the selvage and how to find the repeat on a pattern. You will learn about everything from choosing the correct fabric, thread and sewing needle. It even takes you through how to find which it the right and wrong side of the fabric. All of the information is clearly written and there is either a photo or a diagram to make it easier. I love the explanations for sewing in zips. This is a part of the sewing process I have avoided as it scares me so much. The clear pictures and instructions make it seem so much  easier.This book is written so that you can design your own items for your own home. It gives you all the basic knowledge of design as well as all the information you need.  You are then taking through step-by-step
different projects that you can make for your home. There is a fantastic mix of projects. there are so many projects the only thing you'll struggle with is which project to start making. The projects are varied and are designed for different levels of sewer. You can use this book to expand your skills and make beautiful items for your home. I love Erin's style of writing, it makes it so easy to follow. I also love the fact that there are clear
pictures and diagrams throughout so that it makes it so much easier to complete your project. This book has so much packed into it. What ever level of sewer you are you'll be inspired and making some amazing projects for your home. This is the type of book you'll pick up and use time and again.

Treat your home to a makeover with your sewing skills. Create fabulous projects that turn a house into a home. Home decor and interior design projects for all skills with professional designer tips. Youll find 31 projects for windows, linens, storage, rugs, pillows and more. This book includes Design, Fabric Basics, Window Treatments, Linens for bedroom, bathroom and kitchen, Storage, Walls and Floors and the Outdoors. Youll discover questions to help you make design decisions about your decor; line drawings and photos. There are plenty of projects for graded skill levels, so even if you only have the basics, you can start to make straight away. I like the cornice (pelmet cover), twisted table runner and pineapple hot pad. All the storage solutions look great. I was surprised to see Drapes (curtains) labelled as skill level 3, I am not a highly skilled sewer, but I have made curtains for years. The bed skirt looked more complicated to me but was graded as Skill level 2 as was the duvet cover. The instructions are clear and easy to follow.
