Tie & Dye

Tie and Dye is the process of tying fabric in a certain manner to restrict the dye from entering the tied area when dipped into a dye solution, when the fabric is untied, the tied part of the fabric creates kaleidoscopic pattern onto the fabric.

Applique Work

Applique work is the art of patching a piece of fabric onto another fabric using different stitch types to create a shadow pattern. these fabric patches can be cut and patched in different shapes and sizes to add dimension and design in applique work.

3D Flower

A 3d floral application is cutting circular fabric pieces and edging them on the corners to stop the fabric from fraying by using heat and then assembling these pieces together to create a real-life look like flower


Ruching is the process of gathering a fabric piece and then stitching it on one end of the trip onto a fabric piece leaving one end untied that is rubbed against a hard surface so the gathered fabric opens up on the untied end and gives a feathery look.

Bias Cord

Creating a bias cord using a fabric strip and then twisting and turning the cord into different shapes to create a pattern is called bias strip manipulation. To attach this strip to the fabric we can use both machine and hand stitches based on the desired end outcome
