Overview

Introduces new, creative techniques for the fiber journaler, scrapbooker, doll maker, beader, and sewer through fairy-inspired projects.


This book is the fifth installment on making creative cloth fiber arts from popular art doll designer, fiber artist, and workshop instructor Patti Culea, following Creative Cloth Doll Making, Creative Cloth Doll Faces, Creative Cloth Doll Couture, and Creative Cloth Beaded Dolls. This book builds on the previous four by delving into how to make

fun and elaborate-looking projects using the same old materials in a new and unique way. Readers will learn to make flat figures, fabric books, and a fairy-style fan.

Culea covers the basics and provides new techniques–such as using Shiva paint sticks and stencils, working with silk rods and waste, and

using lace and trims as a frame–while teaching you to how create a flat figure doll, memory journal with embellished cloth pages, and a beautiful fan. Professional tips, ideas for embellishments, cutting-edge techniques, and complete patterns for all the projects are included.

Even though this is Patti's 5th book, it is completely different from her others. It can be used in doll making as well as the projects done in this book.
Patti shares her love of mangling/burning/embellishing fabrics and shows how to apply these techniques on the flat surface. Because she is first a doll designer/maker there are some flat dolls included. One chapter shares ideas that can be created for children.
Lisa See, author of "Snow Flower and the Secret Fan" was the inspiration for the final project - a friendship fan. Other ideas for sharing pages, flat dolls and fans are included.
This book is a 'must have' for anyone who loves Patti's work.
