This workshop was led by Sue Jensen:
Step #1: Cover a square of cotton with colour with - Inktense Blocks. Use a little water on a brush to dampen the colours and a small sponge to move/blend the colours. Press dry to set the dye.
Step #2: Iron a lightweight interfacing to the back of your square. Use a couching or zig-zag foot. Couch decorative cords in a pattern. Use the width of the presser foot as a guide for stitching. Leave space for the next two rows of stitching.
Step #3: Use a zig-zag foot and try some of those designs on your machine that you never play with. I just used the little daisy stitch.
Step #4: Add contrasting lines of thread using the triple stretch stitch.
Step #5: Layer your artwork with batting and backing under and sheer organdy over. You might want to spread a little angelina between the top layers. Stitch with a metallic thread in free areas to hold all layers together. Finish the edge with a small zig zag.
