Hi everyone! I want to share a tutorial with you that I just posted on my blog the curious kiwi - http://thecuriouskiwi.wordpress.com
I use Adobe Photoshop to transform pattern line drawings with photographs of my fabrics to get a little taste of the end result. It’s not as hard as it looks and for those of you who don’t own Photoshop this tutorial explains how to get the same results with a free program called Gimp.
UPDATE: Check out part one for Photoshop users here: http://www.burdastyle.com/techniques/visualising-fabric-on-patterns-part-one-photoshop
Gimp download, a really good photo of your fabric, a clean line drawing of your pattern.
