Stash-busting books add little makes to your home

Detail from cover of Fat Quarter: Quick Makes

How's your stash looking? For sewists with more fabric than they need (never!) these two new craft books will get it busted.

Fat Quarter: Home and Fat Quarter: Quick Makes (£12.99 each) by designer-makers Amanda Russell and Juliet Bawden each include 25 projects that use short lengths of fabric, meaning those pretty scraps you've kept aside can be put to good use.

Full step-by-step instructions and information on the tools and techniques you'll need, plus 250 Insta-worthy photos apiece, will help you make lovely homeware, decorations, gifts and accessories.
