Sewing with Texture + FREE Elastic Thread


Item: R4028Q


In this class you will learn several different ways to add texture to your next sewing project. Instructor Ashley Hough will begin by going over all of the materials and tools needed to complete each of the different texture techniques.

You will first learn how to create wave tucks and see how they can be used in a fun decorative table runner.

The next texture technique Ashley will teach you is three different ways to create ruffles and the best way to attach them to a project. For this section you will see how all three ruffles can be combined onto one project and still look cohesive. The project for this section is an apron and the pattern is provided.

Ashley will then show you how to shirr fabric on your sewing machine using elastic thread. She will show you how to prepare the fabric and explain what adjustments need to be made to your machine. Pre-shirred fabric can also be purchased at some fabric stores and Ashley explains how either can be used to make a quick and easy sun dress.

Finally, Ashley will teach you several different hand sewing texture techniques in the form of traditional and Canadian smocking. She will demonstrate how to read a smocking grid pattern, how to prepare your fabric and how to complete the stitching.
