This four-part class will have you designing your own fabric and turning it into your own wearable masterpiece.
Start by exploring fabric design through simple stamping (don't worry, you don't need to be an artistic genius!), creating your own stamps & printing your fabric in the first two classes. The second two classes will have you choosing from the many great patterns in the book and sewing your lovely fabric into custom clothing or accessories. Your piece(s) will truly be one of a kind!
For this class, you will need to purchase a copy of Print, Pattern, Sew by Jen Hewett, available here
