Week 5: Manipulating fabric

For this lesson we learnt about fabric manipulation, namely shirring and sewing with elastic thread, to create patterned creases in the fabric! I decided to try using a thicker material to see what effect it would create hence I went with felt and the result it quite interesting!

Although this was time consuming as it’s my first time ever sewing something with needle and thread, I was pleasantly surprised at the result! It took a lot of tries but I’m glad that I was able to create something with a consistent pattern.
