Sew Decorative Quick and Easy Home Accents from SewNews

Express yourself with this book of patterns for quick and easy decorative touches for your home.  For the dining room, there is a pretty, but very simple hand embroidered table runner.  There are several patterns for patchwork placemats, pot holders, and table runners. For the bedroom there are instructions for adding trims to pillowcases and sheets. You can make tab-top curtains with a matching bed skirt.  There is a cute bathroom organizer that hangs with your shower curtain and is made with 2 hand towels.

There are patterns for embellished lampshades and a lounge sack, but then my favorite section comes along:  Pillows - square, round, cubed - pillows of all sorts and styles. 

There are 24 projects in all, and many of them are perfect for beginner crafters.  There are a few for the more advanced, but most of them are simple designs that with the right fabric choices will add a touch of your own style to each room. There are detailed instructions with each pattern and four pages of home sewing and embroidery techniques.  

I received a copy of this book for review, but I always give my honest opinion of the book.
