For our course we were asked to bring along....
- Sewing Machine and threads
- Small A6 Notebook
- Silk fabric and scraps
- Sequins, beads, glitter
- Sewing kit
Started off by laying bondaweb onto a silk fabric base, then embellishing with fabric scraps, mesh, sequins, angellina thread etc. These were 'sandwiched' into place with an organza fabric and then ironed together.
Using free motion machine embroidery all over, then highlighting specific areas with contrasting thread....
We then added a back, trimmed to size and stitched around the edges to create our finished notebook covers. Jane also showed us a great technique to create a cord by twisting and stitching different threads!
We had a lovely day on this course and it was great to be able to learn new techniques and put these into practice by creating notebook covers. Jane was the BEST tutor and we'd highly recommend going along to one of her courses if you get a chance! We've certainly been inspired and can't wait to make some more at home!
