On this subject, I came across a familiar artist and her work.
Jann Haworth is an artist who is widely known as one of the great "Pop Art" artists of the 1960's, especially in the the U.K. Her most famous works is still widely seen today. She was commissioned to help design and create the ALBUM COVER for The Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band".
On top of that, she has created many of her best artworks from fabric alone! Check out some of her better sculptures (some from the 60s!) below:
