Description

Creative Fabric Techniques is for quilters and all textile artists interested in discovering ideas for creating exciting textile surfaces.

Techniques covered in Creative Fabric Techniques

Using innovative techniques, top quilter and textile artist Annette Morgan explains how to use existing textiles combined with sheer fabrics and stitching to create sumptuous new surfaces. She shows how to play with wire frames, wrapping, stitching, burning and appliqué to make creative squares. Using fabric as a base for piling on texture she adds paint to give surface decoration.

In Creative Fabric Techniques, Annette Morgan gives ideas for creating textiles from fabrics and those old pieces in the attic, and for creating new from something old – exactly what the painters used to do. Learn how to experiment with wadding, to create a textile base with which to work, also how to use your own images, transfer them to fabric and transform with stitch.

    There are loads of ideas in this ebook (presented as a PDF file). It contains chapters on creating new fabrics, working on a wire frame, soldering techniques, image transfer plus lots more. Although many of the techniques have been seen before, they are all clearly explained and would be great for anyone new to creative textiles as they all give good results and are not too complicated to achieve.
    Some of the chapters are somewhat derivative – the chapter using wire frames covers techniques explored more fully by Val Campbell-Harding and there is an acknowledgement paid to Angie Hughes whose technique of layering and painting fabrics is used as a starting point in one project. However there are some interesting extensions in this section. A good piece on using old-fashioned transfers is followed by excellent ideas for reclaiming stitched disasters.
    The soldering iron and Image transfer sections are very strong with more in the way of innovation than is shown in the earlier chapters. The joy of the ebook format is that you can make the pics big without losing definition and this is a real bonus where quilts are concerned. This ebook is good value for money.- Workshop on the Web

    This ebook explores different ways to create your own fabrics, offering innovative textile art techniques in an equally innovative format. Simpler methods such as layering scraps upon a fusible base, are complemented by more complex procedures such as burning through layers of cloth and incorporating unusual materials like candy wrappers. For the recycling minded art quilters there are many suggestions for creating fabric from discards, such as silk ribbons, buttonhole bands of old shirts, and even antique quilts [ did we mention antique quilts?!!]. Though the digital format might take some getting used to, its benefits are soon apparent; it enables you to easily transfer between topics and chapters, and even hyperlink to suppliers websites so that you’ll have the materials necessary to begin your own fabric making in no time.- Quilting Arts

    This ebook in PDF format is packed with gorgeous ideas – the only problem is deciding which one to try first. All of the techniques are clearly explained and after the initial ‘Wow!’ the next thought is, ‘I could do that.’
    Creating your own textile surfaces can be the starting point for exciting work and, following the instructions, every surface you make will be a little work of art in its own right. Discover how to pile on texture by playing with weaving, wrapping, burning, stitching, layering and even recycling unwanted and unfinished work. Once you’ve got the surface it’s time to transform it with stitch and other embellishments and there are instructions for making your innovative embroidery into finished items, including needlecases and vases.
    These ebooks are very easy to use; as long as you know how to switch your computer on, you’ll soon have all the exciting ideas at your fingertips – and it’s great being able to zoom in on the pages to enlarge the text or take a closer look at the pictures.
