Hand Applique - Birds, Buds, & Blooms (BAKERSFIELD)



Hand applique technique class using the freezer paper starch method to turn fabric over a
template. Participants will create freezer paper templates from a photocopy for all pieces. This
technique class builds on skills such as making templates (circles, stems, leaves) and
introduces new shapes and layering applique pieces. We will focus on curved shapes and
building simple birds, buds, and blooms and then hand stitch these applique pieces to a
foundation background.

This is a beginning to intermediate skill class and students are welcome to bring assorted
scraps or consider purchasing a layer cake with coordinated fabrics. A pattern will be available
during class which includes simple birds, buds and blooms.

We’ll have fun and you will NOT need a sewing machine for this class.
