Overview

Regardless if you are a DIY seamstress or a mixed-media artist, you will be drawn to the complete uniqueness of the projects featured in Strands. Learn how to handcraft original fabric designs using repurposed or simple materials such as thread, tape, plastic bags, paper and more. The author shows you, step-by-step, how to use these innovative creations to craft fashion-forward, easy-to-make projects like wristbands, purses, scarves and hats. Not only will you learn how to create your own interesting fabrics, but understand how to use and apply those fabrics to your regular sewing projects.

  • Strands shows readers how to embellish or create their own "fabric" from a variety of mediums and then transform those fabrics into fun wearables and accessories
  • A new twist on sewing - paper crafters are making their own papers, knitters are spinning and dying their own yarn and now sewing enthusiasts and mixed-media crafters alike will have a guide to creating their own modern, funky fabrics
  • The projects in Strands combine very basic commercial elements and tools with recycled or completely handmade materials or embellishments, promoting the green concept of reuse and recycle.
