Create beautiful accessories to enhance your home using stunningly simple but incredibly effective techniques by creative crafter Tone Finnanger. A subtle colour palette and lovable Tilda designs combine to create a fresh and fun collection of over 35 projects. Easy-to-follow instructions, gorgeous colour photos and delightful illustrations accompany each project, along with actual-size templates that will ensure wonderful results. With pretty homestyle ideas for the entire home from the kitchen to children's bedrooms, everyone will find a project they adore.

Tone Finnanger begins by breaking down the basics: fabrics and materials, techniques such as embroidery and stitching and wrong side appliques, transferring patterns and creating stuffed figures with faces and fancy hairdos.

Fabulous projects are divided into sections of the home: The Entrance Hall that includes pretty felted door mats and lavender-scented shoe hearts; The Kitchen that includes cute cats and fragrant strawberries; The Dining Room that includes decorative table mats and a pretty cafetiere cosy; The Living Room that includes an extravagant tapestry and sweet house angels; The Conservatory that includes happy horses and garden angels; The Hobby Room that includes vintage-style pin cushions and fabric bags and boxes; The Bathroom that includes practical wall pouches and a make-up bag; The Bedroom that includes a woollen felt hot water bottle and handy sleeping masks; The Children's Room that includes an array of figures from the book such as stumpy-legged dogs and good-natured teddy bears. You will fall in love with all of these charming projects.

Make your house a home with this irresistible collection of simple hand-sewn accessories.
