Sometimes you just need your own textile, but you don’t want to start from scratch. That’s when it’s good to get a basic piece of cloth and embellish it yourself. Stamp it, silk screen it, stencil it, and make it your own.
If this sounds appealing to you but you don’t know where to begin, allow me to suggest an excellent starting point: Create Your Own Hand-Printed Cloth by Rayna Gillman.
In this book, you’ll find all the information you need to turn the most ordinary bit of fabric into an original piece of art.
Best of all, if you head over to Create For Less right now, you can get it at a bargain price that will leave you the cash to develop your first project. The original price is $27.95, which isn’t at all bad for what you’re getting. All the same, I really like the idea of getting it for just $11.24.
