Publisher's Description

Tapping into the thrifty vibe of the moment, Fabric Scrapping illustrates how to revamp and reinvent, as well as how to make use of beautiful textiles and trimmings. This is the perfect book for anyone who compulsively collects fabric remnants or who can't bear to part with a much-loved dress that no longer. In Fabric Scrapping, craft queen Katie Ebben shares her brilliant ideas for putting all those scraps to good use, with a collection of super-stylish projects for using up all your gorgeous remnants. As well as explaining how to make an array of furnishings and accessories for all around the home from scratch, Katie shows lots of creative ways to customize bought items with ribbons, trim and applique, and give a new lease of life to vintage fashions, faded bed linen and retro drapes. The projects, illustrated with step-by-step photographs, take you through a variety of old-fashioned techniques, and inspirational spreads show mood boards of materials, textures, ribbons and buttons. The book also features spreads on topics such as mixing and matching patterns and sourcing and using vintage materials, and offers tips, information and practical ideas.
