Hello everyone, I have been taking a 3 day class on Thread Painting. Every class I take, I learn at least one new thing! This time I have counted 7 new things I didn’t know about. And that’s what I want to do for you, when you sign up for my workshop! I want to show you new techniques and learn new things that translate into an “Art To Wear Piece.” Below are several examples of my Terrific Tabard aka “Skinny Vest.”
Marcia Derse Fabrics for this vest below. Below is a Terrific Tabard using Aboriginal fabrics. This vest was made for Beth Watts of Fabric Chicks in Minden, Nevada. You can see this and buy Whisper Blouse Pattern or Terrific Tabard from her at different quilt shows up and down the west coast. Her booth is AMAZING!
Below is “Tree of Life” (lots of collage), and “Aussie Angle” using large scale prints. Fronts and backs and now some close-ups. Tree of Life, the tree. Isn’t this fun, a pin instead of a button? Lovely comments every time I wear it. This pin catches the eye because it’s different.
Take a chance on something different. Leave my workshop with something you will actually WEAR! You will look good and feel great for every compliment you receive. I showcase “Off The Grid” (please look at past posts by Heidi or under “Workshops”) but if you would rather create your own “Terrific Tabard,” that’s great too.Let me know which one you prefer when you sign up for my workshop.
Please see my personal blog for more ideas: Designsbyheidi.wordpress.com and see my patterns at Craftsy.com/sewing patterns/DesignsbyHeidi
Have a very creative weekend wherever you live. I tell everyone, find 15 minutes everyday to get your “creative” going. Hugs, Heidi
