It's time for the first section of our series! Today we're going to discuss how to identify a fabric's overall color. This may seem somewhat straightforward, but it can be tricky! It will be really helpful later in the series when we discuss organizing a stash by color and creating color schemes! And don't forget, there is no right or wrong way of doing this! This is simply the way I do it! :)
I've broken this section down into three different parts. First, I'm going to show examples of different types of fabrics. Second, we'll dissect the color palette of a few fabrics, and finally you'll be challenged to identify overall color of a few difficult fabrics! Also, for more information on the fabrics in each stack, simply click on the image to be taken to flickr, which has information on each print!
