Chic yet practical, sophisticated yet comforting, Lisa Stickley?s homeware designs span many different tastes. With hints of certain old-fashioned charm, Lisa reinterprets many of the classic home items for the modern-day sewer. This book covers all the core sewing projects you need to furnish your home. The projects are grouped into four key areas of the home?kitchen, laundry, living room and bedroom?and each section features projects that are stylish yet simple to achieve.

  1. 1

    Hem the panels.
    Turn 5mm over to the wrong side along the straight edge
    and press. repeat this for a second time so the raw edge
    of the fabric is concealed. pin in place. repeat this for
    the second panel. stitch the pressed hems, stitching as
    close to the inside edge of the turned hem as possible
    for a neat finish. backstitch at the start and finish to
    fasten the seam.

  2. Step 2 2

    Join the panels.
    With right sides facing, place the two pieces together so
    the two hemmed edges meet. starting at the hemmed
    base, stitch from a to b. backstitch at the start and
    finish to fasten the seam. then stitch from c to d. again
    backstitch at the start and finish to fasten the seam.

  3. Step 3 3

    Add the hanger.
    Turn the hanger coat out to the right side and press. fit
    the coat over the wire hanger, taking the hanger’s ‘neck’
    through the hole at the top. hand stitch the hole at the top with a couple of extra stitches to secure.
