About This Class


This class will demonstrate handpainted surface design with the graphic contrast of free motion stitch. As an added bonus, the project will be wearable.

Finally, we will play with handpainted surface design embellished with free motion stitching. There will be three lessons that could be used in one project or you could make three totally different projects.
