This Applique class will let you try out three different methods of applique. The methods are traditional raw edge (or zig-zag), free-motion embroidery applique, then reverse applique, sometimes known as 'Cut through'.

Then choose your favourite method to create a unique picture panel, and make it into a lovely new cushion (or use as a panel for a tote bag). Use your own design or one of mine, it’s up to you.

An applique cushion is an ideal upcycling asyou can use fabric scraps or old clothes. It's also one way of using treasured family heirlooms.

Who is this aimed at?
Anyone who can already use a sewing machine and would like to explore its use for creative projects. Applique is a traditional textile art and is easy and fun to do to decorate clothes, bags, cushions, children's bedding etc.

What will I learn?
how to plan a design for applique
how to prepare your fabric pieces
using bondaweb to secure your design before stitching
using zig-zag applique, free-motion embroidery and cut-through applique
making a cushion: envelope style or how to sew in a zip. You can make your applique design into a tote bag if you prefer.

Fabric scraps for the applique pieces are available in the studio but you will need to bring enough fabric for the cushion panels. I'll advise what you'll need when you book.

Sewing machines are provided or you can bring your own if you prefer.
You should already be able to use a sewing machine confidently.

There will be a break for lunch during the day.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Applique Cushion are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
