"Dressed up Paper Cuts"
“Snazzy” is the word that describes these paper cuts! Gone are the days of solid bright reds, greens, or black paper cuts stitched on a shocking white, or flat beige background. Instead, create a delightful contemporary piece by simply using exciting color backgrounds and contrasting vibrant and deeper shades of paper cuts.
Four-block backgrounds are approx. 15 1/2” square, each, featuring bright stripes, mattress ticking prints, large checks, and even bold polka dots.
Four-paper cut fabrics are approx 13” square, each, use a subtle plaid, mini dots, or a tone on tone floral.
Four- center openings range, 4 1/2”, 6 1/2”, 7”, and 10 1/2”, centered, (so cut all 13”.) feature colorful florals, clear toile motifs, or even a “kicky” pieces from Kaffe Fasset’s lines. (I love his Cabbage print.)
This class includes a group of four ready patterns. Although we will work on only one, the others can be done at home, using the skills we will practice in class. Learn how to fold and skillfully cut the freezer paper patterns, learn prep and perfect placement on the fabric(s) in order to begin stitching in a minimum of time. With a few tips, you will improve your stitching around outside and inside curves, as well as, how to create sharp outside points, and deal with “pesky” inside points.
If you wish, bring “critters” with you, fine. I will have things to share, as well.
