199 Different Projects With How-Tos! Some with serging, some with simple sewing, some with no sewing at all!
The home decorating projects in this book are far from intimidating. Some are almost instant. Many start with fabric rectangles or squares sewn together with simple, straight seaming and then are finished on the machine or serger. Whether simple or slightly more involved, we guide you through each project, highlighting where serging makes the project faster, easier, more durable, or more creative. We also highlight quick projects.
Pick a whole room, a corner of a room, or just a placemat or pillow, then make it your own!
