Fabric Manipulation

I have a subscription to threads magazine and I love the thought of bringing coutureĀ details to crafts. This month they had a tutorial onĀ notched tucks which I thought looked really cool. Here’s my last, and I think successful attempt to copy the technique using linen.

The above sample is the sewn method as shown in the tutorial but I tried another technique which involved fabric glue below.

First attempt

I also thought about trying this technique with colour so I sewed together a bunch of jelly roll strips to create a gradient.

Second attempt

The plan is to make zippy pouches with these though it took me longer than expected because of all the pleating. What do you think?
