Hello again Fabric Fans! Here is the 2nd installment of our new education series, SPOTLIGHT ON TECHNIQUE. We are further exploring Trims – specifically larger flat trims, braids and fringes!
Part 1: Life on the Edge
Last time we talked about gimps & braids smaller than 1″. This week we’re taking on the big boys – trims 2 inches or larger. These are used for larger pieces (think upholstered sofas or long drapes) and/or for dramatic IMPACT!
|Bold Coral Trim Makes a Statement|
Instead of a flat, streamlined trim on these draperies, a fringe (for a softer effect) or a braid (for a heavier silhouette) could have been used – and the effect would have been completely different!
Part 2: A Pillow…by any other name
Trims make pillows pop. They are the easiest way to personalize your pillows – take plain Jane store bought pillows and make them into designer statement pieces…all with a little trim and glue!
