Are you into fashion illustration? We've learned that as a designer, it's pretty imperative that you are able to illustrate your designs prior to production. So what happens if you are not artistic in that way? Well...that's when you pay someone else who IS. Or you take fashion illustration classes. So then what happens if you don't have the money to pay? That's where YouTube comes in. We found a great video detailing a tutorial on fashion illustration. Just grab your pencil, eraser, and markers and follow along with the instructor. Then, create your own design, snap a quick photo and share it with us on Instagram using the hashtag #sewcriscroche! Don't forget to tag us (@sewcriscroche) so we can see your design. We'll choose the best one. The winner will receive a free Valentine's pillow pattern. We can't wait to see what you design!

Now that you can appreciate it, why not try your hand at it? All it takes is a swatch of fabric and a pack of sequins. We'll try our hand at it, hope you will too.
