Brand new sewists and expert seamstresses alike are always looking for new ways to add that extra special wow factor to their homemade projects. Finding ways to make projects entirely yours can separate you from all the other sewists. If you are ready to take the next step by embellishing and decorating your DIY wonders, Basics and Beyond: Simple Embellishments from Leisure Arts is the collection for you. By combining basic tutorials on how to create embellishment basics like shown zippers and yo yos with project ideas attached to each technique, this unique collection is a comprehensive guide on how to apply chic techniques to your sewing endeavors.

All levels of sewists will find value in this collection of tutorials and projects. While you may already know how to create add-ons like yo yos, you will find another technique you have yet to explore. Even if you are an expert with all the knowledge you could possibly want on the topic of adding wow to your sewing, the project ideas are unique and simple. Your sewing endeavors will never be the same once you learn to add a fabulous touch of you to each and every pattern or project you create.

Projects like the “Colorful Collage Mixed Media Jacket” and the “Quilted Binder Cover” use well-known decoration techniques in new ways. It can be hard to find a collection that continually builds on itself and retains its value after you have powered through all of the projects. Leisure Arts’ Basic and Beyond: Simple Embellishments is a book that does not only serve as inspiration. This book can be tucked away on a shelf to serve as an encyclopedia or go-to guide on how to embellish. If you have an old project you want to make new or have just finished a sewn pattern that needs a little something extra, you will always have this cool, chic collection to turn to when you need to add some style.
