Whether you're preparing to cozy down as the days draw in, planning a spooky Halloween celebration or wanting to re-organize your space and reinvigorate your home décor, you'll find a gorgeous collection of items to make: from draught excluders and comfy cushions to a playful witch's hat and some fun, pumpkin-inspired bunting.

Each item requires no more than half a yard of outer fabric, plus all the necessary hardware, trimmings and lining. Every project features Debbie's friendly, easy-to-follow instructions perfect for even complete beginners along with a beautiful photograph of the finished make.

The 40 inspiring projects have been specially curated by Debbie: 30 are taken from her much-loved Half Yard series, along with 10 brand-new projects.
