Mixed Media goes graphic, minimal and sophisticated. Go beyond commercially available fabrics and get your hands dirty! Create your own modern substrates through Krista’s interactive project-based sewing workshops. Readers will stitch up 19 designer projects while experimenting with ways to stamp, print, paint, dye, and embellish fabrics to use for unique projects to gift and keep.
Beyond Cotton will take modern makers beyond the world of commercially available fabrics by encouraging readers to work with different, but readily available materials like leather, rivets, and industrial-grade felt. Create a Leather Cuff in three ways: stitched, carved or stamped; learn to create design repeats; set up a home printing table and experiment with dyeing fabrics. Krista encourages beginners and more experienced sewist alike to break out of using only someone else's fabrics and to take ownership of the look of their work from start to finish. This book is packed with skill-building techniques, new and fun ways to create your own fabric based on projects you will want to use everyday and lots of inspiration!
