Book Description

Sewing titles are as successful in the 20 to Make series as they are across the rest of Search Press titles, and this is sure to add to those successes. Alistair shows you how to embellish existing items, such as boots or a pair of mittens, with a touch of luxury; and also to make complete items out of faux fur, such as a scarf, headband and a muff. You can make gorgeous gifts for yourself, your friends and your family.

Everyone loves the feel of fake fur, and faux fur fabrics are more popular now than they've ever been. Beautifully soft and tactile, faux fur adds a touch of luxury to everyday items such as boots, gloves, bags and scarves. It is widely available and very affordable, and with helpful hints for cutting, sewing and lining, Alistair Macdonald shows you how to make gorgeously sumptuous items for a fraction of the price they are in the shops. There are twenty projects to choose from, including a glamorous fake-fur scarf, a fun furry pink cushion and a 'must-have' fluffy purse. The pair of pretty fake-fur trimmed mittens will make any little girl feel like a princess, and the super-snug collar, headband and gloves are perfect for staying warm on cold winter days. With a range of projects to suit all tastes and abilities, this is the perfect book for spoiling yourself, your family or your friends with a handmade faux-fur gift.
