Haynes - Sewing Manual Product Description

If you think Sewing is for oldies and stay-at-home-mum’s; think again. From Cath Kidston to Topshop, all the big brands and the high street helpfuls are breaking out the sewing machines and getting some serious stitches. Now that a double-triple-whipple recession has hit and doesn’t seem to be letting go, we’re all facing that age old problem: do I buy more clothes, or spend the money on…electricity?! Fear not, thanks to Prezzybox you no longer have to live in the dark! Instead of buying high priced garments, go very vintage and create your own! Whether its snipping up bits of different items of your fave clothing and sewing them together to make a completely unique new look, or simply mending an old favourite that’s become a little…holey – this is the kit for you. Start with the basic kit and techniques, learning how to become the master of your own machine; then make your way up to more intricate things such as fastenings, embellishments, clothing and home furnishings.

Imagine, not only could you make your own fashion fixtures, you could become the next Cath Kidston, or Rocha John Rocha! Use the illustrated, step-by-step project guides to create your own masterpieces and then move on to create your own designs. What’s more, your sewing kit gives you helpful hints and helps to un-jargonise your sewing machine so it’s all easy to understand and easier to use. No more getting yourself in a stitch!

  • Accompanied by illustrated step-by-step projects
