Alabama Stitch Book

No comments


I borrowed this gorgeous book from the library.  The Alabama Stitch Book is not just a book about applique on t-shirts, it's about Natalie Chanin's journey towards sustainable fashion. Natalie was looking for a way to redesign deconstructed t-shirts, and after many confused looks in the fashion capitol, NY City, she went back to her roots in Alabama.  It was there that she reached out to the community to start Alabama Chanin, employing the locals and integrating the traditional skills and techniques of stitching into her work. Apart from old t-shirts, they also use locally harvested organic cotton. I think what's great about Alabama Chanin is that they are the opposite of fast fashion - they don't mass produce.



The book has many easy to follow projects, and it has a whole section on how to sew if you don't know how to!



Feeling very inspired by this skirt!



Not keen on making something wearable? You can make table cloth, note books and even bandannas! 


 The book comes with templates and paper patterns, and is available at the National Library.
