Place pieces of fabric in a sketchbook either to show off a creation or to enhance a picture. This is especially useful if you are designing an article of clothing or textile. You can glue any type of textile in a sketchbook, but thicker fabrics will stress the bind of the sketchbook. If you plan to use several pieces of thick fabric, such as faux fur, use a spiral-bound book to prevent damage. A spiral-bound book will also provide enough "give" to prevent flattening the fabric.
Cut the piece of fabric to the proper size. Use scissors designated for cutting fabric to ensure a sharp, clean cut.
Apply Super Glue around the edges of the back side of the fabric.
Lay the fabric piece on the paper in the sketchbook. Run a finger along the edge to press the glue into place. Super Glue dries quickly.
Write down the date or any other information around the fabric with a fine-tipped marker.
Applying glue to the centre or inner part of the fabric will create a hard dent in the cloth.
