Summary

Add character, comfort, color, texture, and style to any room, with fabulous-looking and simple-to-make pillows. Dozens of exquisite pillows, shown in full-color photographs, will inspire you to get right to work. Use a wide variety of techniques for pillowmaking, including reverse appliqu#65533;, smocking and shirring, stamping, needlework, ribbonwork, and more. Whether your tastes run to the elegance of richly trimmed brocade, the heirloom charm of layered lace, or the whimsy of a pillow covered with buttons, you are sure to find ideas to suit your home's d#65533;cor. See how to transform a pile of outdated and discarded neckties into chic room accents. Weave ribbons together in infinite combinations of color and texture. Explore the timelessness of white and other neutrals by working with pure linen, silk, and cotton. Play with shapes--try a cube, a star, or even an outrageous little shopping bag filled with velvet fruit. 128 pages (all in color), 8 1/2 x 10. NEW IN PAPERBACK
