In these difficult times, we all need to be more aware of the resources to be found within our cupboards, stashes and workrooms. This book looks at exciting ways of using this treasure trove by building from the bottom up. Backgrounds and layers provide a base for stitch and make the sometimes difficult job of designing textiles much easier.

Maggie says: 'This book has been a delight. I set myself a challenge to use what I had or what I could find at no cost. In the process, I discovered the joys of making and using straps. Initially, these were borders but they grew into vessels, book-covers and many other finished pieces - a whole new way of working.'
