Beyond Cotton will take you 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. Author Krista Fleckenstein encourages beginners and more experienced sewists alike to break out of using only 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!
