Jane Foster is one of the UK’s most exciting up-and-coming designers. An entirely self-taught illustrator and screen printer, her work is strongly influenced by Scandinavian and British design from the 1950s and 60s.

Fun with Fabric is Jane’s first book, and in it she presents 15 simple projects, using fabulous fabrics from her own collection. Jane shows you how to sew and stick to create bold, colourful accessories for your home.

Whether you are already hoarding stacks of vintage fabric or prefer to buy new reproduction designs, this book is packed with practical and inspirational project ideas. Patchwork cushions, bags and quilts will need some simple sewing skills, while covered notebooks, a noticeboard and pen pots can be achieved with scissors and glue. Jane’s fun and easygoing approach to her work shines through in each of the 15 projects. Here’s to embracing the retro lifestyle!
