One of the most popular projects was the fringed flowers and how fringing may be used for hair on dolls and animals as well.
Following closely was making "velvet" which students enjoyed using as parts of birds stitched and for leaves or parts of flowers. An extraordinarily easy technique which they loved - here's a towel using the techinque on the leaves. Note the wonderfully practical "hanger" at the top of the hand towel!
Students used Lutrador Rainbow Spun, a stabilizer topper and a washaway underneath.
They were fascinated by the use of Mylar Embroidery Sheets and we had so many variations - here are just a few.
Look at this wonderful free-standing bell which would also adorn a Christmas Tree, sparkling with its added Hot-Fix Crystals. I've shown it for you being stitched on Rinseaway Stabilizer so as you may understand how it was formed. Some girls stitched this out in Gold Metallic, or other colours.
Cutwork is the latest rage for machine embroiderers. They experimented with these amazing needles to have the most exquisite cutwork made so easily.
More tomorrow, Day 3 is our last day. Hope you are enjoying sharing students' exciting lessons!
