Whether you re moving into a new home, launching a home makeover, or just sprucing up a room, this book, At Home With Modern June, by Kelly McCants provides plenty of ideas on how to infuse individuality into every room in the house. The 27 budget-friendly projects have a retro style and use materials such as oilcloth, laminated cotton, and chalk cloth in addition to quilter's cotton. Easy-to-follow instructions and helpful photographs guide you to success. You ll make drapes, bed skirts, floor mats, and much more. All that s required is a bit of ingenuity, a little time, and some basic skills."
Publishers Weekly, 2014-01-20 McCants's first book covered sewing with oilcloth (and was titled just that), and this follow-up will be welcomed by her readers eager for more of her bright, cheerful, and often-oilcloth-centered designs, many of which she developed for her own Virginia home after a hurricane damaged it extensively. The selection of patterns focuses on the home, with simple but well-finished instructions for basic needs, such as lined baskets, curtains for the shower and windows, and a bed skirt. Crafters looking to outfit their sewing room will especially like the ironing table, sewing machine cover, and Giant Mood Board, a bulletin-type board for design ideas. The ironing table and the mood board, like the chalkboard-fabric Easy Eyelet Place Mats, are no-sew projects, a few of which are scattered throughout the book. Instructions, suggestions, and tips throughout will help the beginning sewist accomplish these mostly intermediate-level patterns, while commendably complete instructions on sewing with oilcloth will be of great help to most readers. The wonderful full-color photos are motivating; both they and the text make it clear that careful finishing will lead to an attractive, useful, and cheerful result. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
