Half Yard Gifts is the latest title from sewing guru Debbie Shore, and the next book in her best-selling half yard series. It contains 22 projects to sew and give away, each made using less than half a yard of fabric. The book contains gifts for all your family and friends: the projects range from pincushions, bags and paperweights to aprons for budding chefs, kneeling pads for gardeners and tool belts for DIY-enthusiasts. The projects are made in a range of prints and styles and use a range of techniques: either follow each project closely, or adapt the size and fabric to suit the recipient. Debbie gives advice on how to customise the projects, so that you can create the perfect gift for your loved one.
This book would be perfect if you are new to sewing and need some guidance with the basic techniques and key information, as Debbies friendly advice and clear step-by-step photography make it a doddle. But its also packed with fresh ideas and designs that will inspire you even if youve been a keen sewer for many years and are looking for a way to use up your stash and create meaningful gifts that your loved ones will treasure.

Review:

As we have come to expect from popular author Debbie, this new title is packed with lots of fun items to sew from small quantities of material. Debbie's eye for colour and her choice of fabric means each project is not only attractive but also practical. Comprehensive instructions and sewing tips ensure success for sewers of all abilities * East Kent Embroiderers Guild * Debbie shore is a genius when it comes to making a lot from just a little bit of fabric. In her latest book, she presents 22 ways to make pretty, yet inexpensive gifts for everyone. Working with half a yard of fabric or less, you can create cushions, a draught excluder, purses and even a gardener's kneeling pad, plus many other fun and functional items. These easy-to-make designs will help you use up your fabric stash and try out some new skills, including free motion embroidery `Cathedral Window' quilting, fabric slashing and many more. * Love to Make * 'Tis the season for gift sewing, and Shore's latest is a collection of easy-to-sew projects using a half yard (or less) of fabric. Most of the projects are frilly and feminine or whimsical and child-friendly, with ribbon, lace, and button trims, and quilting cotton featuring prominently. They're the type of projects that don't require body measurements, making it easy to whip up a few to give as last-minute or hostess gifts. The majority are home-decor related, including an oilcloth-covered garden kneeler, a door stop shaped like a handbag, a throw pillow featuring a slashed-fabric design, and a cupcake-shaped pot holder. The directions are given in short steps with photos of key points. Photos of the finished projects abound as well. Patterns are not included, which isn't problematic because most of the projects highlight shapes that are simple to cut. Directions for creating custom templates are included as needed. VERDICT Gift sewing is popular, and there's a wide range of projects here. Sewists looking for cute, feminine gift designs will enjoy * Library Journal USA * Issue 45 Debbie Shore's latest practical sewing guide combines her love of homemade gifts with her passion for upcycling, and features 22 clever ideas for turning leftover 'half-yard' pieces of fabric into bespoke gifts for family and friends. Basic sewing advice, tools, tips, techniques and simple instructions make the projects easily achievable for both beginners and experienced sewers. We love the sentiment behind recycling unwanted materials into something special for someone special, with projects including a gardener's kneeling pad, tablet cover, decorative string of birds, cosmetics bag, child's apron and pyramid paperweight. * Reloved * A beautiful book that uses small amount of fabric so it is ideal for beginners and established sewists. Debbie Shore gives easy instructions so they are easy to understand and to follow. She is a fabulous pattern maker and I know that whatever I make, it will turn out beautifully. These projects can be made in a couple of hours so it's perfect for people that have limited time but want to be creative for a while. Highly recommended * Postcard Reviews *
