It's a question every sewing enthusiast asks--what to do with all those leftover odds and ends? Wonder no more, because you can take those scrap fabrics, buttons, lace remnants, and other materials and create this vast assortment of fun and creative projects. Using buttonhole and chain stitches, make a Decorated Apron with fabric adornments such as appliqu#65533;s. Join multiple fabrics to put together a Patchwork Tea Cozy and Coffeepot Sleeve, or rest easy on a Silk Scarf Bolster pillow. They're all simple enough for novices to tackle, but offer intermediate and even advanced crafters a wealth of great ideas. Embroidery, sewing, using ribbons and trims, and patchwork techniques are all covered, as are sewing box basics.

Instructions on how to make retro curtain cushions

A nice mix of hand-sewing and machine-sewing projects, but if you are a fan of these newer fiber craft books you will have seen similar projects before. My favorite is the Vintage Doily Curtain Panel! I can see this as a skirt or duvet cover as well.
