Stitch readers can't get enough of pillows and other home décor accessories. Perhaps it's because home décor items are among the most accessible of sewing projects: quick to make, no fitting required, and fun to show off. And what better place to use and showcase these items than where you lay your head? Best of Stitch: Beautiful Bedrooms will bring together a colorful, sensory feast of favorite and fresh projects that are easy on the eye and just a little bit sultry. Readers will learn new skills and find creative ways to make their sleeping quarters a showplace for handmade items. The book will include 5 new and 15 repurposed magazine projects as well as sidebars and tip boxes on specific techniques that are used in the projects, offering tips and troubleshooting advice for construction, hand stitching, working with fabrics, and embellishing. A "Sewing Basics" reference section at the back of the book covers sewing skills necessary for creating all projects.

This book:
  • Includes 15 favorite projects from Stitch and 5 all-new projects.
  • Projects range from beginner to intermediate and offer a large variety of designs: quilts and duvet covers, curtains and shades, pillows and bolsters, and wearable accessories and garments, including a kimono wrap, slippers, and a “zzzakka” eye mask.
  • Features projects by many popular designers, including Tricia Waddell, Carol Zentgraf, Linda Permann, Linda Lee, Kevin Kosbab, and Malka Dubrawsky.

Rip Off Review by Christine

The patterns in this book are printed on both sides of the paper so you can't cut them out, plus they are printed in non-reproducing blue so it is impossible to copy them to cut them out. You have to use black magic marker all over the patterns just to get something you can use. This book is a rip off - I NEVER would have bought if I knew the patterns were unusable. >:(
