New from the author of ECO CRAFT: a unique approach to stitchery!

Meet the most creative power tool in a stitcher’s arsenal: the ordinary sewing machine! Cutting-edge author Susan Wasinger turns it into a source of fun and experimentation with more than 20 innovative projects—some with surprising variations.

Susan encourages sewers to play with their machines, giving them eye-opening techniques to try: stitch without thread to puncture non-fabric materials; use leather needles to sew through layers of fused felt; reorient seams to transform flat projects into 3-D.  Along with the familiar fabrics and recycled garments, she gets into the spirit of exploration with unexpected materials, from paper and tire tubes to neoprene. And with the skill level set at beginning to intermediate, every crafter can join in!

Projects include:   Bags and Totes; Home décor and gift items; Wearables, such as hats and other accessories
