eBook- RSP- Eye-Popping Fabrication!

(This is another post in our series previewing our NEW eBook- “Rock Star ‘Peace’work”– which will be available soon as a pdf download.)

I don’t know about you, but I live quite a distance from the nearest fabric store, and even then, it leaves much to be desired in terms of selection (as has already been discussed on this blog). So over time, I’ve perfected the art of ‘fabricating’ my own fabric. One of the questions I get asked most often, is,

“Where do you find your fabrics?”

And the truth is, it’s really not easy finding fabric that is appropriate for handbags. Handbags are so small in scale that they can really get overwhelmed by large or busy prints. So, in sheer defense, I’ve had to perfect a technique whereby I can create my OWN fabric.

For example, if I used this fabric on the right as the primary fabric for a bag, it would not be good at all. The unique features of the bag would be lost because the fabric is just too busy. There’s not enough open space. There’s just WAY too much noise!

BUT…  wait!            Maybe I still could this fabric somehow!

What if I could transform that fabric in THIS way, and place it on the front of my bag? Can you just imagine what an eye-popper that bag would become? Now, all of a sudden, you would be drawn into the center of this bag. This bag becomes focused and riveting instead of looking random and average.

Do you think your projects could benefit from a transformation like this? If so, then you need to know that we’ll be sharing our secrets about fabric manipulation, project segmentation and MUCH MORE in our upcoming eBook, Rock Star ‘Peace’work, which will be available as a PDF download very SOON!  So stay tuned for more information!
