Things Sewers Use

I chose the topic of sewing, since that is something I know about. I planned my layout out in pencil and paper first.

Then I drew the illustrations I wanted to use in the actual finished zine.

After that I scanned in all of the drawing I wanted to use. I started thinking about how I wanted to place them on the paper in Illustrator for the final printing.

After everything was in place I started filling all the titles in with different fonts.

Printing was kind of tough. I could see that the layout fit within print lines on my computer, but when I would fold the paper it didn't line up everywhere. I adjusted many times and printed out a few to try out.

I think this was a great way to work on an illustrated project. I have never put anything like this together before so I would say this really stretched me. Thanks for the class and the project.

At the very end I decided to add a watermark of all the different sewing supplies to the background. I think it looks good that way but I am wondering if it is distracting to other viewers.
