A guide to transforming found and cherished textiles.

Textile artist Mandy Pattullo shows how to source, refashion and repurpose vintage textiles to create beautiful collages and other unique textile objects. There are ideas for embellishment, stitch and appliqué as well as tips for transforming material into impressive quilts, bags, books, tablecloths, tapestry panels, wall hangings and much more.

Following the make-do-and-mend and folk art traditions of previous generations, Mandy provides simple instructions for working with a variety of vintage textiles and precious fragments. There are projects for working with quilts, patchworks, linen, lace, wool and even deconstructing pre-loved garments.

Each project perfectly demonstrates how fabrics and textiles can find a new and repurposed life and will inspire textile artists to incorporate these past beauties into their own work.

Mandy Pattullo trained as a surface pattern and textile designer and now is a textile artist, exhibiting her own work around the UK and also running textile and printmaking workshops. Her work is based on collage technique and she makes a conscious effort not to buy new fabric but repurpose the range of beautiful  existing  pieces that can be found everywhere.
