Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Austin-based fabric designer Wisbrun explores the possibilities of fabric embellishment in her first book, which covers a diverse variety of techniques for adding pizzazz to sewing projects. After an overview of fabric types and design principles, Wisbrun gets into the nitty-gritty of decorating fabric, including printing, dyeing, and embellishing with beads, sequins, thread, and other elements. Interviews with professional fabric artists are included throughout the book, allowing sewists a peek inside several different studios. VERDICT Wisbrun's techniques apply to all crafts involving fabric, from garment and accessory sewing to quilting to embroidery, so there's plenty of appeal here.
