Half-Yard Heaven

Half-Yard Heaven by Debbie Shore
Published by Search Press
4th October 2013
Paperback Edition
We all have scraps of fabric that we never end up using, so this bestselling book by Debbie Shore for 26 projects to make with less than half a yard of fabric is ideal.  There are lots of different ideas in here, some you will have undoubtedly seen before, but lots of other new ones too.  They range from tissue box covers, to slippers, glasses cases and placemats.
The images, as you would expect, are very clear and bright and the instructions are perfect for sewers of all abilities.
This can be used for needles and hooks too

Some of my favourite inclusions are for a sewing machine cover, neck cushions (which annoyingly I'd just bought for my girls but will be using the pattern from this once they split) and a gorgeous chicken doorstop - who could resist?!
I think that there are lots of useful projects to get your teeth into, and to use up those scraps of left-over fabric!
