Exploring Design – Challenge VIII
I like the design challenge articles – Challenge VIII in this Issue 113. This was a tough one and one which I probably would have bailed on if I had been participating. The mix of all the different prints would have seemed insurmountable to me.
I think I’ll use these types of challenges for myself. I have loads of fabric… little bits of this… little bits of that… And I think if I challenge myself like you do your designers to come up with something wearable using only what I have, it may help me work through my stash a little better.
I’m also thinking of starting with the fabric I have and then selecting a pattern from my pattern stash based on the fabric – instead of looking at the pattern and deciding to go out to get more fabric. Might be fun to try.
