Unusual Details

Interesting shirred-like or crumpled effect. I have seen this with paper, but not often with fabric. The more I look at it, the more I like it. Posted by Picasa

This bizarre effect is achieved by stitching around a ring (see lower right corner of diagram). Posted by Picasa

And here's a smocked element, and perhaps a bleached fabric design. Very elegant. Posted by Picasa

I have a collection of Japanese crafting books too - I should post them. Thanks for sharing!

Have you seen "The Art of Manupulating Fabric" by Colette Wolff? I imagine between that and the Japanese craft book you could come up with some really cool designs!
