Easy Going - Quick projects
from new fabrics and used textiles
This and that
Often, it’s the little things that give us pleasure – whipping up something eye-catching from remnants, or coming across some amazing fabric by chance, and turning it into something new for little cost or effort. It’s something we always seem to find the time for, despite the hectic pace of modern life.
You too can transform your old T-shirts, jeans, scarves and neckties into your new favourite accessories. All of these projects are quick to make. Alternatively, sew a summery basic garment in next to no time and without a complicated pattern, which, when worn with, say, some jewellery you’ve made yourself, underscores your own personal style.
Make room in your home for little monsters! Not only will they thrill the children, but – judging by the relevant home and living magazines – they seem to be the latest adult fashion craze. Whether or not you go for the monsters, though, this issue is chock-full of ideas for refreshing your home environment for minimum effort and expense. Experiment with bobbin work, or upcycle your remnants, ribbons and trim into brand-new projects.
