Extracts from this document...


Design specification and design ideas My design specification will include all the information that will give anyone who reads it a clear idea of what my product will look like and the features it will have. My target audience is teenagers. The product is a quilt and two matching cushions with it. The cost of this product will be reasonable as I have explained on the research and analysis section that teenagers cannot afford to buy a quilt that is expensive as they have to watch their budget.

My quilt will be made out of 100% cotton because my survey gave these results and this is what teenagers prefer best. They prefer this because cotton is soft and comfortable to sleep with.

I will produce two matching cushions with my quilt. My quilt will be 135cm wide x 200cm length. This is 135x 200 cm the size of a double sized bed. I will be sewing my quilt and cushions together and the fastenings that I will use are zips and buttons. Always sew quilt back to front because it's easier to sew accurately. My bindings width will be 1/4 (finished size). The binding strips will be cut 1 1/2 wide. The cuts strips have to be bigger as they have to cover two sides of the quilt. Zobia ...read more.
