Modern DIY Upholstery shows the hobby sewer or complete newcomer how to make the leap into home upholstery taking you gently by the hand, demonstrating the simple techniques you need to bring your love of fabric to upholstered items for the home.

Not a dry, highly technical professional upholstery manual, this bright and accessible book presents 10 simple projects using modern methods that are quick and easy to achieve.

You will be taken step-by-step through the process of upholstery of desirable pieces of furniture - using items found at antique markets, street sales and thrift stores that are designed up and given a modern twist.

You will then learn all about fabric choice and other materials, discover the essential techniques and then embark on the projects which include a simple stool, a vintage sewing box, a blanket box or ottoman, a fluted headboard, a Danish dining chair, a bedroom/nursing chair, a patchwork armchair and a mid-century design two-seater sofa, all guided by the author's expert instruction.

QR codes will take you to time-lapse videos of the construction of each project - the only book to attempt such a feat
