Staple Drape Your Own Designs
Staple draping is sculpting on the body, using repurposed fabric, a stapler, staples and scissors. It’s a fun, fast and sustainable way to create shapes. Take the drape and use it to make a pattern or take out the staples and sew it up. You can do this if you’ve never sewn a seam, or if you sew all the time and want a fresh way to create your textile art.
