About the book
In Stitch Magic, fashion and textile expert Alison Reid teaches sewers how to manipulate and sculpt fabric by using such techniques as folding, cutting, pleating, tucking, gathering, and stitching, creating entirely new surfaces and textures in the process. The resulting fabrics, which look sophisticated and complex but are actually relatively simple and inexpensive to produce, can be used for entire textiles, such as cushions or blinds, or to create fashion accessories or embellishments. 

Stitch Magic
serves as both a technical reference guide, which the sewer can consult time and again, as well as an inspiring project book. Among the beautiful, modern projects included are curtains and cushions, a throw, shawl, cape, necklace, and bag. Detailed illustrations throughout make all of the instructions easy to follow.
