Danielle is back today with her challenge for you this month...and it's a good one!!
I've made quite few different garments over the years, but if I had to choose one element that unified most of them, it would be textile manipulation. If you want to know the truth, sewing isn't always super relaxing for me. But I LOVE hand-dying, painting with dye, stamping with fabric paint, digitally designing and printing fabric, embroidering, quilting, appliqueing, or any other method you can think of that changes basic fabric in some way! In terms of designing, these are all things that can further personalize your vision of exactly what you want to create, and the part of the design process that makes me feel totally zen! I see textile manipulation as a critical element to my design process and hope you will be excited to implement it too!
And don't forget to wear gloves!
