In this free eBook, Making Art to Wear: 4 Free Mixed-Media Designs for Wearable Art Clothing and More, you'll find four wearable art ideas you can adapt to suit your style–or that of your favorite artist.

Making your own wearable art clothing needn't take a lot of time or complicated sewing skills. You just need to add your unique touch with paint, stitching, and ingenuity.

Our first tutorial couldn't be easier. Bianca Mandity shows you how to transform a plain thrifted button-down shirt with some free-motion stitching. A little practice with the free-motion stitching pattern, and you'll have a unique piece of wearable art.

Next, Mandy Russell shows you how to make a cuff bracelet with fabric paint, trims, buttons, and a little stitching. You'll want to make cuff art for both arms and those of your friends.

The Crafty Chica, Kathy Cano-Murillo, likes her accessories loud and sassy, with paint and glitter taking center stage. Her Flora Fedora art to wear has plenty of both, but you can use her basic instructions to personalize it any way you like.

With these four tutorials, you'll have four new ways of letting the world know you're an artist.
