There are eight gorgeous things to make, including journals, a sewing case, a project bag and a scroll cloth diary, using a range of exciting techniques that include layering and collage, hand embroidery, transferring your own designs to cloth, stamping, appliqué, embellishing, patchwork and free motion machine embroidery.
