Modern Broderie Perse Class - Tuesday 12 March 7-9pm $15
Dianne will show how you can take parts of printed fabric and use them in a modern version of Broderie Perse, a form of applique popular in the late 1800's. Because printed chintz fabric was very expensive they cut out designs and appliqued them onto a plainer background to make larger items like bed quilts. I will show you a modern version, doesn't have to be floral designs. I made 3 similar designs to show you different backgrounds and stitches.
Cork Bag Wednesday 27 March 7-9pm $20 includes pattern
Dianne has designed this lovely bag made using cotton fabric and cork fabric. This is real cork that has been sliced thinly and applied to a fabric base. It is very soft and very popular for all sorts of sewing projects especially bags. Sustainable, stain resistant and water resistant so ideal for this. I chose to use a star cutout section, you can have another design or an applique in its place.
