TASTER: Turtle Dove Tree Project with Anne Baxter
FREE Tasters (Textile Art) • Educational, G, 01-Dec-2017
Anne has made this into both using silk scraps for the wall hangings. They won’t take much wear and tear; but suggests cotton fabrics for the cushion, as it needs to be a little bit hardier.
Anne talks you through the stitches she has used. The stitches vary depending on the project. But in all cases reminds you that for good results you need to use the open-toe applique foot on your machine.
She also has some great tips and information on the stitches you could/should uses. At the end talks you through how to add that small flat fillet of fabric, which just adds a little bit of zig.
For more information on that you can click here to enjoy a workshop with Valerie on flat piping.
