That hand-woven throw casually tossed over a chair. The vase holding a single flower. The variety of lighted candles sitting on the mantel. It's the small details like these that turn a house into a stylish home. Not only do these objects provide beauty, but many, such as fabric-covered hat and shoe boxes, are useful for storage or as gifts. * Learn all the basic techniques, from mitred corners to binding to gluing.* Drape dressing tables in yards of material.* Brighten up tables with personalized tablecloths, place mats, and napkins.* Get instructions for sewing hemmed finishes, and covering stools, side tables, and luggage racks.* Make your own lampshade. Some of sheerest silk let light shine through; others are fashioned out of gathered material, or pleated. * Construct frames, boxes, screens, lunch baskets and more! And a lot of other design ideas. Turn your house into a stylish home with this informative series that everyone can use. New Holland 80 pages (all in color), 8 1/2 x 11.
