In Cassandra Ellis' new book, Home Sewn: Projects and Inspiration for Every Room, you get a how-to-guide on how to sew just about anything for your home. The sewing projects in the book is broken up into sections: Living, Resting, and Eating and Sharing. For the Living section, you can learn how to sew lamp shades, linen ottomans (I plan on making this as I have to change out the fabric of my ottoman), sofa throws, silk upholstery and curtain tiebacks. For the Resting section, you can learn how to sew pillowcases, headboard piece, bed skirt, duvet cover. For the Eating and Sharing section, there are instructions on how to sew tea towels, tablecloth, placemats, coasters, chair covers. The book goes into detail about where you can obtain quality fabric, dyes, kits, and other sewing needs. The pictures are also divine and really lovely to flip through. As I am a novice sewer, this book is really handy to have on hand for my redecorating needs.
