A shimmer and sparkle free motion and hand stitch project! Dot will take you through step by step how to make these stunning 3-D flowers.  For the home project she focuses on brooches as the outcome, but the processes lend to many other applications.

Description

The box includes step by step illustrated instructions and video tutorial, templates, inspirational images and materials to make a wall hanging.
You will work on calico that has been prepared with gesso.  First adding paint. Then using very lovely light effects thread, hand stitch is added. Free machine embroidery is used to complete two dimensional flowers and leaves. A brooch back and felt backing are then added.
There are many possibilities with this technique. Images show fantasy flower picture compositions as well as individual motifs suitable for brooches.

The focus of this box is to create a 3D picture therefore it includes all elements of the fantasy flowers brooches box but extends it in the following ways
 *Videos to accompany the box
*Instructions and inspiration for 3D foliage and seed heads and seed pods
*Instructions and inspiration for composition of overall piece
*Sufficient materials I.e. gessoed calico, light effects thread and stranded thread for background and 6 to 8 compositional elements.
An introduction Zoom Session one evening with Dot, if the majority would like to attend.

The project is most suitable for those with some experience of free machine embroidery.

The beautiful vase picture is by student: Catherine Eubanks.

    An excellently presented project. There are plenty of materials, very clear step by step instructions and good extra photos for inspiration. The video clips are also a very useful bonus.
