A great book for crafters who want to take things on from dressmaking, upholstery and other fabric crafts – why not print the fabric as well? There are 25 projects here that go from simple potato prints on wrapping paper to creating your own design of bed linen and dress fabric. Starting with the potato prints, Jay Jolliffe moves on to block printing, stencils and screenprinting with clear instructions on how to apply this new-found craft. Lovely designs with templates included but plenty of ideas too for coming up with your own fabric prints. ~ Sue Baker
