Jump-start your muse with fabric design!

 

If you’ve wanted to create your own unique cloth using online websites but don’t know where to start, this fun and no-stress approach to innovative fabric design is the answer.

 

You will love this DVD if:

  • You enjoyed other resources by Jane Dunnewold, including Felt Backed Textiles: A Contemporary Finishing and Hanging Technique, Quilting Arts Workshop: Screen Printing Sampler, and Art Cloth: A Guide to Surface Design for Fabrics.
  • You enjoy incorporating different surface design techniques into your quilts.

Join surface design expert Jane Dunnewold as she guides you through her methods for creating gorgeous, one-of-a-kind fabrics using a home computer and readily available tools. First, you’ll learn how to use your camera and scanner to create images that can be altered for digital fabric design. Virtually anything that can be photographed or scanned has potential as design material. Then Jane demonstrates how to easily navigate photo-editing software on the computer, as well as the online Spoonflower and PicMonkey sites.

 

Within minutes, she shows how to alter images, change colors, adjust the designs, and create repeating patterns. And finally, you decide which of the resulting designs to have printed on the fabric of your choice.


This approach to fabric design is totally accessible. It’s like having your own fabric design studio at your fingertips on your home computer. With Jane’s simple directions and expert guidance, you’ll be designing your own fabric in no time!

LOVED THIS CLASS! Review by Flora
Rating

I loved every second of this class. I'm afflicted with the "Design My Own Fabric" passion, and I enjoy learning from many different professionals who have explored this concept. The last few wall art quilts I've made have all been with fabric I've designed and had printed (via companies such as Spoonflower). Jane offers both a confirmation of several things I had already been doing plus several new ideas that will make my future projects even better!

I'm disappointed Review by Gala

I was a little disappointed in this video. I have played with Spoonflower for some time now and have many fabrics in my design studio. I was hoping to see Jane go through her design process and use of photograph manipulation. It is just a tutorial on using Spoonflower which is basically self explanatory.

Highly recommended for any artist, untangles digital mysteries Review by Lyn
Rating

Jane’s Design and Print Your Own Fabric is a fascinating look at the endless digital design possibilities available online to any artist, not just those who work in fiber and fabric. I was so excited by the techniques she demonstrated that I want to pause the video and rush off to try each one as she introduced it. Jane untangles the Gordian know of pixels, resolution, downloading and file names in her calm, knowledgeable and friendly manner. She gives hands-on tips, as well, such as the marvelous “expanded square” design and her “scavenger hunt” for yummy visual textures from vintage fabrics and exotic papers. And just when your brain can’t hold another Eureka, she says, “But wait – there’s more” – and there is! I will refer back to this wonderful video whenever I need an inspiration or a confidence-builder. Thanks, Jane!
