Textiles Transformed: Thread and thrift with reclaimed textiles [9781849945806]

(1 review) Write a Review

Mandy Pattullo, textile artist and author of Textile Collage, builds on her previous work demonstrating how found and cherished textiles can be used to create beautiful collages. In this, her new work, Mandy demonstrates how to source, refashion and repurpose old and worn vintage textiles, not only through embellishment, stitch and applique but also into stunning quilts, bags, books, tablecloths and napkins, tapestry panels and wall hangings, and much more.

Following the make-do-and-mend and Folk Art traditions of previous generations, Mandy provides simple instructions for working with a variety of vintage textiles and precious fragments. There are projects for working with quilts and patchworks, linen and lace, wool and knitting and even deconstructing pre-loved garments.

Each project beautifully demonstrates how fabrics and textiles can find a new and repurposed life and will inspire you to incorporate these past beauties into your own unique textile work.

AUTHOR: Mandy Patullo trained as a surface pattern and textile designer and now is a textile artist, exhibiting her own work around the UK and also running textile and printmaking workshops. Her work is based on collage technique and she makes a conscious effort not to buy new fabric but repurpose the range of beautiful existing pieces that can be found everywhere.
