- Join pieces to create pots with necks, rims, handles, and even a teapot spout
- Choose from seven projects and explore a gorgeous gallery for additional ideas
- Put your fabric stash to use and sew something spectacular
This is quite an ingenious idea - it looks like pottery but is made from fabric and stitched on the sewing machine. It follows on from the success of Breier's It's a Wrap books one and two, published by the same publishing house. The simple process allows you to create pots of many shapes and sizes - there is even a teapot in this book and quite a few have a lid. Many of the projects have also been embellished. The book has clear instructions and good projects.
