Description
Information
New ideas in reclaiming, recycling and reusing a range of fabrics and papers in textiles with the use of both stitch and heat tools. Whether you want to be thrifty, green or want to add a sense of heritage to your work, reclaiming old bits of paper, fabric, plastic and packaging can lead to the most stunning textile art. Kim Thittichai takes you through a range of techniques, from collage, quilting, patchwork, rag-rugging, piecing and stitch and gives it her own twist, combining it with heat tools, in many cases, to highlight new ideas in textile art. Each chapter has a step-by-step finished project to help you get started but also lots of techniques and combinations for the more experienced textiler.

From reclaiming old newspapers and using heat tools to make brooches to recycling old jumpers to make new bags or incorporating cardboard packaging into a quilting project, this is an innovative book on cutting-edge reclaimed textile work. It showcases the work of the best textile artists working today.
