Do you struggle selecting the “right” fabrics? Do you stick with kits because you hate selecting fabrics? You just might be fabric phobic!
In this lecture, Jenny shares several examples from her own work and offers practical methods to select colors and fabrics for your next project.
Jenny has always been creative and had a love of color.
I remember organizing my box of crayons in color order. I fed that drive with books, magazines, tv shows and videos. (I call this part "vicarious crafting", because I often went long stretches not making a DARN thing, just reading about it!) I learned garment construction, embroidery and crewel, floral design and even an unsuccessful attempt at knitting.
I often combined patterns, these sleeves, that neckline, this skirt, to get just the vision I wanted. When I started quilting, it brought all theses skills together and I was happily trapped. My little sewing space in the laundry was my oasis. To be a designer, you have to blaze your own trail. Others' ideas can be an inspiration, but you have to have your own point of view.
