Create your own happy garden of funky flowers as a table runner. You may choose to sew only one end of your base fabric to make a wall hanging or a table topper.
In this workshop you will learn design principles, color theory, the basics of blanket stitching wool applique to the foundation by machine.
Fusible web is used to bond the wool to the fabric, hand over-dyed felted wool is stitched to a beautiful piece of batik to create your own magic garden. Stabilizer placed under the batik helps give a firm foundation making it easier to stitch successfully.
This is a beginner to intermediate level project. The batik used in the project will not be exactly the same as that in the model but one will be provided that is as similar as possible.
This is suitable for beginners with basic sewing experience up to advanced level. You must know how to use a sewing machine.
Please bring to class scissors (both for cutting paper and fabric), thread snips and pins. You will also want to have a piece of 18" x 22" flannel for a design wall.
