Very creative, and all the techniques are fully explained, with variations, materials, etc being discussed as well as the basics. I thought the aunt and uncle fabric dolls with fabric printed photo heads were especially nifty. A great book to stimulate my creativity, and I definitely enjoyed Karol's quirky handmade style, but not a book so indispensably useful that I'd ever consider buying it. ( )

You’ve bent all the rules with sewing, so now what? It’s high time you made your own fashions even more you with Amy Karol’s next craft revolution: Bend the Rules with Fabric.

Using simple, high-impact techniques:
• painting
• stamping
• dyeing
• silk screening
• photo transfer

You’ll learn everything you need to know to turn a plain piece of fabric or a garment into the perfect showcase for your personality.

In this follow-up to the wildly popular Bend-the-Rules Sewing you will see how easy it is to alter fabric, making and using your own custom stamps; make stencils that will totally transform totes and tees; rescue tired clothes with a new dye job; and use appliqués to spruce up anything that needs a little TLC. With Amy’s familiar, friendly tone and valuable advice, you’ll see every piece of fabric as blank canvas for your artistic vision!
