Kyoto Jacket - Side Two

I had fun picking out fabrics and putting this jacket together. The jacket is reversible, which is great because I love all of the fabrics I used and really don't want to "hide" any of the fabrics in a lining.

Painted Purse with Hand Made Clay Beads

I painted some fabric to make a purse. I had made some clay beads last semester, and I was wondering what I was going to do with them. I used them to keep the purse flap from flapping about.

Painting White on White

This is the latest painted blouse. I used some leftover white fabric with a subtle white design. I like how it came out.

Fabric Painting

This is my second attempt at fabric painting. I used more water and fewer colors. Then I grabbed a few leaves from the Mexican Bird of Paradise, a few stones and tried sun printing.

This is my first attempt at fabric painting and I discovered I needed to put more water on the fabric, more water in the paint, and use fewer colors.
