The life of a crafter tends to revolve around trying new patterns, combining materials, making something completely new.

One book that has really inspired me into this fusion technique has been Fun with Yarn and Fabric: More Than 50 Projects to Sew, Crochet, it is filled with projects that combine fabric with yarn into beautiful projects like cushion covers, blankets, etc.It is also so colorful that it will really motivate you into trying new color schemes.

Some time ago, I got this turquoise chevron fabric from Hobby Lobby with the intention of making a dress that would combine crochet and fabric. Just like a fusion blanket, I would make a fusion dress: fabric and crochet together to make a new dress.
