The herbarium approach here offers you a window into the natural character of plants, which lets you make your fabric versions amazing. These wearable projects from naturalist and fiber artist Utopiano don't just visually replicate each plant but represent everything about it—even including invisible elements like scent, power, and presence. Plus, each project includes easy instructions for dyeing your cloth pieces, a feature that helps capture the colors of nature and makes these one of a kind. The herbarium format unfolds like this: first, each plant is collected directly from the field, and its key info and uniqueness are explained. Then, use the patterns that Utopiano offers you here to create fabric versions for wearing or display. Make a chic Frilly Pansy brooch with petals dyed in multicolored layers. Create the cold-resistant edelweiss using velvet to capture the plant's dense hair and thickness. Feel the pure joy of translating blooming flowers into fabric with your own hands! Includes full-size templates for every project.
