Tip on sewing illustration from Sew Illustrated by @zeriano & @kristin_esser: Sewing illustration is simply drawing with thread. Just as you might use a pen with a thicker or thinner tip to create the look you want when drawing, play around with different weights of thread in the same way. Sometimes you’ll want a heavier outline, almost like a hand-embroidered look, and can use an 8- or 12-weight thread. But sometimes a more delicate line is what a design calls for, so try 40- or 50-weight thread. There are times when you might need to outline a design several times to achieve the look you want, and sometimes once will be sufficient. Play around to find the look and thread weights that you prefer. 🎨

From this week’s post: What if you’ve found the perfect fabric and you just can’t bear to break out the scissors? Maybe it’s too beautiful to see the design in little pieces. Maybe you have a severe case of FOMO (fear of missing out), knowing that if you use it all up for this project, you won’t have anything left for a different, possibly better project that you might think of later… after it’s too late.
