Studio Time: Fabric Design


(testing squares, the two on left are mine, top right corner used another of my designs)

Fabric design is not something I thought I would ever be interested in. Kinda funny considering how much I love patterns and color.  This final project from last semester combined bast dyeing, discharging, off-set thickened dye stamping, fabric paint stamping, and embroidery.  I would like to do this some more... Maybe next semester, with a bit more yardage. Regardless, it was fun even if quite involved.

I love fabric patterns, these are cool, must be a blast even if time consuming.

Oh I really like this. What an amazing final project. Can't wait to see more. Textile design is something you should really consider.

I studied interior design in college and fabrics are just my most favorite thing ever! These look so great and are tempting me to give fabric printing a go. Maybe in my next life I'll have time for all the things I don't have time for right now like fabric design and weaving, sigh.....
