The Fiesta Ornaments class is always fun, since there are a variety of different materials and techniques involved. The first half of the class we spend leisurely painting and during the second half we break out the tools.
The little fabric paintings are combined with heavy weight interfacing and colorful hand dyed fabric, then quilted and finished with a satin stitched edge.
Decorative edge craft scissors and x-acto knives are used to cut the metal frames.
The frames are then stitched to the quilted ornaments, people are always a little nervous about this step until they see how easy it is to sew.
Then the real fun begins when we pull out the embossing tools to decorate the metal with decorative designs.
Aren’t they wonderful?!
