August 31st Crazy Patch Class

Thursday August 31st Crazy Patch/ Bobbinwork class.

Conway Library Community Room during Sewing Basket time.

Bring the supplies listed below to create one crazy patch square to embellish using your machines fancy stitches and Bobbinwork.

The above are examples of some crazy patch and are embellished with a technique called bobbinwork. The decorative thread is wound on the bobbin. You sew with the right side of the fabric facing the bobbin.

This is embellished with fancy stitches on my machine, but I used bobbinwork as a trim around the edges.

Supplies:

Sewing machine with at least  zig-zag capabilities in good working order. Bring basic sewing supplies like pins, scissors, ripper, machine needles, and extra bobbins.

If trying bobbinwork you will need about a size 10 crochet cotton, 8 perle cotton, or try a skein of floss… Bring matching top thread.

Bring fabric pieces to make approximately a 12″ square. In the picture above there are 10 different scraps that were to be thrown out. You will need one backing piece of fabric about 12″ square along with a piece of batting to match. I will bring extra in case someone is in need of backing and batting. I also will bring some scraps to share… 🙂

More information will be discussed August 10th during our normal time to meet.
