Crazy patchwork is formed when odd shaped fabric pieces are stitched onto a thin foundation layer. The seams are then all covered with a variety of embroidery stitches. The remaining blank fabric patches can then be covered with hand stitching and embellishments.
In this hand sewing workshop you will learn about sewing fabrics that Angela has naturally dyed onto a foundation background by hand and the following embroidery stitches; running stitch, whipped running stitch, fly stitch, herringbone stitch, blanket stitch, cross stitch, French knots and bullion knots. You will stitch some Kantha motifs and add embellishments to your work including two of Angela’s own design of wooden hare buttons, sequins, beads, lace and ribbon.
Your finished work will measure 12.5” x 12.5” and after the workshop could become a cushion, part of a quilt, bag or left as a beautiful stitch sample. All resources are included in the price of this workshop
