In this class we'll turn a photograph or drawing into a textural keepsake/piece of art. We'll discuss ways to transfer your image to fabric, how to choose colors, thread weights, and basic stitch options to help you complete your project. Simple applique will also be discussed as a way to add interest to your work. You can add your fabric piece to a pillow, tote bag, or frame it for safe keeping. Please bring photocopies of the drawing/photo you wish to utilize as you'll be drawing on top of it.
