This book combines two ancient obsessions, polyhedra and English Paper Piecing, to show how to sew toys (balls for babies, paperweights for adults); home d cor (bowls, ornaments, pincushions, a desktop planetarium); and artistic accessories (brooches and handbags.) There are 17+ unique projects in this book that you will enjoy making and your friends and family will marvel over. The seven shapes explored in this book are: Dodecahedron and Stellated Dodecahedron; Truncated Octahedron; Truncated Cuboctahedron; Icosahedron; and Truncated Icosahedron. Most of the projects can be hand or machine sewn. Each project includes step-by-step fully illustrated directions. You can use any fabric - including "precut" packs - or even upcycled material like candy wrappers and coffee bags. And don't worry about your grade in high school geometry - no math is required.
