Description

Introduces new, creative techniques for the fiber journaler, scrapbooker, doll maker, beader, and sewer through fairy-inspired projects.


This book is the fifth installment on making creative cloth fiber arts from popular art doll designer, fiber artist, and workshop instructor Patti Culea, following Creative Cloth Doll Making, Creative Cloth Doll Faces, Creative Cloth Doll Couture, and Creative Cloth Beaded Dolls. This book builds on the previous four by delving into how to make fun and elaborate-looking projects using the same old materials in a new and unique way. Readers will learn to make flat figures, fabric books, and a fairy-style fan.

Culea covers the basics and provides new techniques–such as using Shiva paint sticks and stencils, working with silk rods and waste, and using lace and trims as a frame–while teaching you to how create a flat figure doll, memory journal with embellished cloth pages, and a beautiful fan. Professional tips, ideas for embellishments, cutting-edge techniques, and complete patterns for all the projects are included.

The author

Patti Medaris Culea has a full-line of cloth doll patterns and her work has appeared in books, magazines, and galleries. She is the author of Creative Cloth Doll Making, Creative Cloth Doll Faces, and Creative Cloth Doll Couture. Patti lives in San Diego, CA.
