Chapter 1, At Home I Have..., includes a patchwork quilt with a pattern based on the Fibonacci sequence, or you can explore alternative embroidery with the skull picture. In chapter 2, Under Canvas I Love..., find your tent with a homemade patchwork flag and keep your stuff in a handy purse belt, waterproof tablet case, and yo-yo decorated storage pouch. Chapter 3, Today I’m Wearing... shows you how to make the perfect pretty-and-practical apron, as well as an embellished collar to liven up plain tops and a patchwork coat for your pooch. Finally, in chapter 4, I Like to Make..., discover a knitter’s bucket bag, needle roll, pincushion, and more. Stylish artworks alongside this eccentric collection of makes will inspire you to pick up a needle and thread and create something that’s both individual and beautiful.
