A great opportunity to work with Vendulka creating a statement feather wall hanging with free motion embroidery.

Description

    colours of the organza).
    Ring for the dream catcher ( We sell
    20cm ring for £3.50 or you can use
    willow sticks for more natural look – has
    to be several of them woven together
    as the ring needs to be nice and
    strong)
    Yarns or perle cotton or string for
    weaving the net.
    Beads, real feather, pendants etc. for decoration
    50 cm square of organza for feathers
    Variegated thread matching the organza for stitching 55 x 35 cm piece of wadding and backing.

  • Preparation at home:
    In order to get as far as we can on the day, could you please take your top fabric, wadding and backing, create a quilting sandwich and quilt as desired in a very matching thread to your chosen fabric. IT doesn’t really matter what sort of quilting you will choose, just quilt the whole surface evenly – stippling or Vermicelli is fine, straight or wavy crossing lines with walking foot are fine as well. It doesnt’ have to be complicated. Use thread which will blend in, we want the quilting to be there but not stand out as we will be adding more stitching on top
