SelbySoftFurnishings.com provides high quality textiles for wholesale prices via their online store, and has published step by step guides to producing household items to help people produce soft furnishings.
Manchester, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/30/2014 -- Soft furnishings such as curtains and cushions can be expensive to buy and are actually far cheaper to make, if one can find the raw materials affordably. Many crafty individuals sew these items themselves using wholesale fabrics from online stores like Selby Soft Furnishings, who offer a comprehensive catalogue of colours, patterns and fabric types that can be used for everything from curtains to re-upholstering a sofa. Unfortunately the only thing standing in most people’s way is not knowing how to start, so Selby Soft Furnishings has published a comprehensive, step by step guide to making curtains and cushions.
The step by step guide starts first with curtains before moving on to cushions, and includes detailed information on everything from how to measure windows to generate conventional curtain lengths, to how to cut and stitch them. The guide introduces first the materials and equipment required before using high quality imagery to demonstrate step by step how to produce each item.
In addition to these practical step by step guides are further resources that look at how to choose the right material for a given task. For instance heavy curtain fabric will block more light for those on night shifts or with street light pollution, and lightweight upholstery fabric will not be hardwearing enough to upcycle tattered furniture.
A spokesperson for Selby Soft Furnishings explained, “We want to foster a supportive community for the crafts that enables people to feel confident approaching these subjects for the first time. Our range of hand made products offer an affordable and high quality solution for those who want to have hand-crafted things in the house without making them themselves, but we have often found that many people want the satisfaction of generating their own work, which is why we sell a comprehensive array of textiles, and now, explain to potential customers exactly how they can use them. We have had excellent feedback from the guide and we hope it helps thousands more people to produce their own unique furnishings.”
