It's appliqué... but in reverse. Sounds complicated but it's not. We promise.
In this class your instructor, Rosalie Gale, will teach you a simple way to hand stitch pretty reverse appliqué patterns onto your clothing. Reverse appliqué is an excellent way to mend clothing that has been stained or ripped. Bring a couple of items that were destined for the trash but you still love with at least half of your heart. We'll plan a design, pick fabrics and hand stitch our pieces to salvage our favorite clothing pieces from the landfill. If you would rather not bring a clothing item, we will have scrap fabrics for you to practice the technique.
Thread, needles, scrap fabric and stabilizer will be provided. If you have materials that you prefer to work with, please feel free to bring them. We will learn the running stitch, back stitch and reverse chain stitch in this beginner friendly class.
