Learn how to embellish your own garment or generic item into a custom piece, or breathe new life into something older. Patches are a fun, trendy and sustainable way to upcycle your belongings. In this class, you will have the opportunity to choose from Made Marion’s wide variety of motifs or create your own patches that represent bits and pieces of who you are. You will learn how to use fusibles and free motion or hand sewing to attach your designs. You are welcome to bring any quilting type fabrics with patterns you may want to turn into patches. We should warn you that after this class, you may become addicted to upcycling and find yourself constantly seeking out new ways to add your own creative flair to your wardrobe!
- a jacket, bag, jeans, hat, laptop case, backpack, tote bag or whatever you want to decorate!
- any quilting type fabrics with patterns you may want to turn into patches. Ready-made patches will also be available.
- Optional: you may wish to bring a sewing machine if it has a free motion embroidery function & foot. A limited number of machines will be available. You will also be able to work by hand if preferred.
