Fabric Sample Books: DECONSTRUCTED

Investment:

$20.00 worth of fabric sample books and one day spent:

  • Tearing off the cardboard casings.
  • Removing staples….dozens and dozens of staples.
  • Trimming glue off of the fabric.
  • Removing paper labels from the fabric.
  • Sorting and bagging the samples I didn’t want to keep.
  • A HUGE mess….
  • Small scratches and cuts to my hands and achy fingers from tearing and pulling and cutting.

Return on investment:

  • Hundreds of fabric pieces, all different colors and textures and patterns to use in Artist Trading Cards, Art Journaling, Fabric Beads and Sewing.

Absolutely worth it!
