This is step two of creating your one of a kind fabric purse – a piece of wearable art.
This step is all about slicing and dicing your base fabric.
This is what you’ll need today:
- Fabric Strips, 1” – 1 1/2” wide, in varying lengths, longer is better.
- Rotary cutter
They can be contrasting colors or blenders.
They can be anything your heart desires.
This is about having fun, being daring and letting go and breaking a few Quilting rules. 🙂
And of course your fearless spontaneity
What we are going to do is make diagonal slices – one or two at a time across the base fabric you created last time.
This will create jagged edges and is the reason I always make oversized fabric pieces.
Let’s create some wearable art!
Place your fabric base on top of your mat, right side up.
Make a diagonal slice. Any angle you want.
before we sew a strip to this, let’s make another diagonal slice on the left piece.
I call these Complex Cuts
Now sew a strip of fabric between the SECOND cut. The shorter one,
Trim the diagonal edge so it’s even.
Next, sew a strip of fabric to between your FIRST cut.
Continue in this way cutting on the diagonal and sewing strips of fabric between.
Looks pretty ugly right now…but it’s okay
It’ll turn into a wearable piece of art when it’s done!
The next step will add lots of pop and pizzazz
Happy slicing and dicing!
