Description

Machine Appliqué – Make a Zipped Lined Purse

Applique is a fab way to personalise any sewing project and a great way to decorate fabric. This is a really fun and creative session where you will learn two different techniques of applying a decorative image to fabric by machine stitching it on. We will learn to add lettering, use stencils and get creative with layering designs. All the techniques we learn will be made into a beautiful lined purse with a zip fastening.

A range of images and materials will be provided for you to choose from but please feel free to bring along your own designs/images/fabrics you would like to use.

You will learn;

  • Using bonaweb for neat application
  • Adding layers of fabric
  • Controlling your sewing machine for a professional look
  • Basic satin stitch applique – often used for adding lettering
  • Creative stitching to give a hand drawn look
  • Inserting a zip
  • Making a zipped, lined purse

All materials are provided along with handouts which detail all the techniques so you can make more purses when you get home. Just bring your sewing machine, a zip foot and some white thread. If you need to borrow a machine please let us know upon booking.

Refreshments will be provided and you will be able to get 20% of in Chirpy on the day (except for Artist in Residence work)
