Design and Make Decorative Details
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.
