This challenge is to take any length of fabric and see what shapes, styles, accessories, garments you can make without stitching. You can pin, cut, fold, embellish, but no sewing/gluing or permanent fastening. You can alter the shape into a circle, trapezoid, rectangle, square, etc. Narrow goods are also in the competition.
The object is to be able to fashion anything out of a single piece and have it be reusable later into something else. Think of it as this: If you only had 1 piece of fabric to take with you on a deserted island, how would you use it? Or if you were going to be in fashion week, what would you have walking down the runway?
I'll put together a panel of textile mavens to consider the ideas.. Winners! Prizes! Someone will receive a very very special gift from my personal stash.
Submit your ideas, photos to firstname.lastname@example.org, or post comments and photos on this blog.
Entries are due March 31, 2010, and Winners will be announced May 1, 2010.
