REBECCA PEACOCK & SAM TICKNER    Book Number: 86329    Product format: Paperback

Save the planet, society, and your pennies with this fabulous companion to mending and making clothes. Rebecca Peacock and Sam Tickner have compiled this brilliant and thorough guide to learning skills that will last a lifetime, as well bringing you the joy of claiming that 'I made this myself.' From making household items, skirts and scarves, to creating personalised gifts such as hanging bird decorations and a cape for your own superhero, the projects in this book are perfect for DIY novices and pros alike. Before throwing you in the deep end, this guide has four sections: 'Introduction' (including how to dismantle garments and where to store them), 'Equipment' (from your hedgehog pincushion to troubleshooting and sewing machines), 'Techniques' (whether hand sewing, creating pleats, and dealing with stains), as well as 'Projects'. Whether advising on fabrics from silk, wool, or linen, or wanting to make a cowl scarf from your faded t-shirt and use your old school tie as a decorative handle, there is no greater way to jazz up your wardrobe than these step-by-step methods. With special advice on the use of tailor's chalk and demonstrating steps with diagrams, a section dedicated to your personal notes and a list of shops and websites. Thread your needle and get ready to master a whole myriad of skills. 6½" x 8", paperback, colour images and diagrams, 192pp.
