Please watch the “prep” video. Then you will not spend the entire class just cutting out your fabric
You will need small pieces of fabric with Medium/Large motifs, Medium/Large leaves, flowers, ornaments & other motifs. Please see the sample fabrics I used in the video. I used flowers from charm squares, layer cakes and scraps. Don't worry to get whole flowers. Half a flower works just as well as a whole flower. Look for other fun motifs like presents, birds, hearts, candy, toys, and such. Look for motifs in different sizes and styles.
Do not bring your sewing machine. We will not be sewing at all.
All supplies are available for purchase in our store with a 10% class discount.
