Delve into a brilliant techniques section, guiding you through a variety of essential techniques, from inserting a zip and sewing buttonholes to creating patchwork.

Once you have brushed up on your sewing skills it's time to get sewing. Choose from 15 inspiring projects: from doorstops and drawstring bags to tablemats, aprons and cushions. Each fun fat-quarter project contains colourful photographs, instructive hand-drawn illustrations and a stash of handy hints and tips.
