Make a small fabric picture in a day using a favourite bird. We will consider design, composition and colour. Using Bondaweb we will be cutting fabric, shapes and ironing them down as raw edge appliqué. The composition can then be finished with hand or machine sewing as preferred. Bird templates will be provided or you can draw your own. Ideas for settings will be given, including simple landscapes, flowers, branches etc to provide the setting for your bird. We will make a design approximately 30cm square.
Materials not included.
Half metre bondaweb.
30cm square approx of white or grey felt, (I will bring plenty – allow 50p)
A mixture of fabrics to suit your composition, ideally cotton fabrics would be textured, mottled, batiks, or randomly dyed, or small patterns.
Sewing kit, fabric scissors, some embroidery threads for finishing details, small beads/sequins etc (for eyes!) Also pencil, rubber, and paper scissors.
Sewing machine. Free motion quilting foot ideally.
