LoveReading Expert Review of Fun with Fabric Sew, Cut, Print and Stick with Retro and Vintage Fabric

Fun with Fabric is Jane Foster's first book, and in it she presents 15 simple projects, using fabulous fabrics from her own collection. With a cheerful primary coloured retro design hardback cover, this is a small but perfectly formed book. It is stuffed full of information about retro and vintage fabric, where to find it and what you can do with it, from the tiniest scrap of fabric, to larger pieces. With vibrant photos, easy to understand instructions, hints, tips and templates for fun projects this would make a lovely present (possibly even for yourself). ~ Liz Robinson

Fun with Fabric Sew, Cut, Print and Stick with Retro and Vintage Fabric Synopsis

Jane Foster is one of the UK's most exciting up-and-coming designers. An entirely self-taught illustrator and screen printer, her work is strongly influenced by Scandinavian and British design from the 1950s and 60s. Jane shows you how to sew and stick to create bold, colourful accessories for your home. Whether you are already hoarding stacks of vintage fabric or prefer to buy new reproduction designs, this book is packed with practical and inspirational project ideas. Patchwork cushions, bags and quilts will need some simple sewing skills, while covered notebooks, a noticeboard and pen pots can be achieved with scissors and glue. Jane's fun and easygoing approach to her work shines through in each of the 15 projects. Here's to embracing the retro lifestyle!
