We're moving this summer! Look for Indygo Junction soon on Handicraft.com
Good Morning and welcome to the Dimensional Denim blog tour! Today we kick off 10 days of dimensional projects, ideas and inspiration from some of the most creative minds on the internet. DImesional-Denim-CVR-Final-3 Amy was inspired to write this book while designing her Crossroads Denim line. Working with the denim we realized that we needed to create a pattern to take advantage of it's unique qualities. Denim is double-sided, textural and extremely rip-able. We wanted to use these properties in patterns that offer more than a flat surface, but add a three dimensional quality to your sewing projects. sw We chose 10 techniques that we thought could be applied to all sorts of projects; garments, home decor and accessories. The techniques are simple, but create a stunning look. Each technique has an accompanying project for you to create. But don't stop there! Our hope is that you take these techniques and incorporate them into other patterns and projects. scarf We were interested in how the techniques inspire other people, so we rounded up 10 of our creative friends for a little show and tell. Follow along with us for the next two weeks as we check out Dimensional Denim inspiration all over the web! ddcouch This Contest is Closed a Rafflecopter giveaway Blog Tour Schedule: 8/4 Kollbora 8/5 Amy Barickman 8/6 FishSticks Designs 8/7 Cool2Craft 8/8 The Sewing Loft 8/11 Nancy Zieman 8/12 Skip to My Lou 8/13 Inventive Denim 8/14 Whipstitch 8/15 Coats and Clark
