Patchwork With Large Fabrics

Megan Roughsedge Shields

For this project I was wanted to explore repurposing larger scale materials to create a textile or garment. Through this I was largely inspired by other designers who use either recycled, antique or found materials to create collaged and patchwork garments.

Some of the main materials I used through my process were old towels, curtains and blankets. With my final design being made from an old blanket I chose to recycle.
