I teach how to make new fabrics from scraps. When sewing I end up having a lot of fabric remnants in a variety of sizes. In the past I either used to throw them away or snip them even smaller and use as stuffing for pillows or dolls but lately I have been looking at the scraps with different eyes and seeing the potential of new “fabric” there.
The technique that I focus on here is actually a way to create new fabric “yardage” which can be used as is or can be used as fabric to create other products.
It can be used as abstract art quilts, as patchwork backgrounds for embellishing on, as fabric for creating clothing such as a vest or a coat. It can also be used as fabric for pillows, bags and pouches. The applications for this quilted, textured fabric are endless.
For this technique one can also use very small scraps of stained clothing as well as remnants from other projects to create something unique and personal while also being economical.
You will learn how to create 2 different types of quilted, textured fabrics from scraps. You will also learn how to bind and prepare your quilted art work for hanging.
Once you try this technique I think that you will want to do it again and again. It is extremely satisfying to create a new product from scraps. You can create in whatever size you like, though for the tutorial piece I suggest a specific size to become acquainted with the technique. Once you have mastered it, the sky is the limit.
You don't need to buy any special tools for this, a regular domestic sewing machine will do the job. When I teach I don't know what machines or tools people will have and I want everyone to be able to use my techniques without having to spend any money to buy new machines or expensive tools. My tutorials are designed to be used with a standard domestic straight stitch machine..You can also reuse fabrics you have at home to recreate them into a beautiful piece of fabric.
