Sewing Pretty Little Things shows how to use small pieces of fabric to make big impressions. This book is packed with creative ideas for using fabric scraps and remnants in classic, beautiful designs. The authors show how to give new purpose to a special piece of fabric, by transforming it into an attractive coin purse, an elegant wallet, or a handy clutch. With original projects like journal covers, travel slippers, key fobs, cosmetic cases and even backpacks, readers are sure to find a use for all kinds of fabrics and patterns. Stunning colour photographs illustrate the potential of the craft. Step-by-step instructions make each project easy to create with whatever material is at hand.
