Book Description

Cushions are a great way of brightening up a room and giving it your own personal touch. They can be luxuriously decadent or homely and comforting; inject colour and fun into your life, or be soft and seductive. Whatever your style, Debbie Shore has a cushion cover that is perfect for you. In this sumptuous book, there are twenty-six gorgeous designs to choose from, with ideas and inspiration for many more, all with clear, step-by-step photographs and no-fuss, easy-to-follow instructions.
Debbie’s designs have a fresh, contemporary appeal, and you will be amazed at how easy they are to make. And you don’t have to spend a fortune either. You can achieve a designer look at a fraction of the price you’d pay in the shops, and with her firm belief in recycling, Debbie has incorporated children’s old clothes, grown-out-of jeans, pretty dress fabric, unused table-cloths or even last year’s bedding into many of her designs. Be inspired - add your own flair and individuality to the cushion covers you make and, before you know it, you will be designing cushions of your own!

About the Author

About Debbie Shore
For Debbie Shore, taking a role as a presenter on children's television in 1986 was the unlikely first step to becoming one of UK's the most popular sewing designers. From charming kids on ITV and acting in some of our favourite soaps, she went on to demonstrate sewing products for a shopping channel, before making the leap to designing her own patterns, fabrics, kits and sewing projects. Her prolific output also includes over 20 best-selling sewing books, which feature simple and understandable projects to encourage new sewers to have a go. This has all contributed to elevating her to the position of one of the UK's best-loved pattern designers, and the winner of Craft Influencer of the Year and Social Media Influencer of the Year in the British Sewing Awards 2019.

Debbie has over 210,000 subscribers on her award-winning You Tube channel. In 2018, Debbie launched her Half Yard Sewing Club, a monthly subscription service based on the megaselling Half Yard series, and won the 2019 IPG Digital Publishing Award.

My mum, Sue, was particularly happy about me receiving this book as she is a fan of Debbie Shore who she watches on a shopping channel. Sue finds Debbies hints and tips practical and invaluable when it comes to all types of sewing, not just cushion covers, and this book is full of these. There are many clever ideas all with step by step instructions which can be used for the projects in the book or adapted for your own projects. Any beginner or experienced sewer would find this book a great addition to their collection.
