Three-D Thread Appliques
3D Applique, Free Motion Embroidery, Thread Painting

ddd_intro_small_birdsStudents will learn to create appliques totally from thread. Free motion embroidery will be used to create either a black capped chickadee or a hummingbird. The technique can be later used to make realistic images of birds, flowers, or wildlife. All the tricks, from working with difficult threads to controlling distortion, will be covered. These can be used as focal points in wall hangings and wearable art.
