Scrumptious bit and pieces of vintage laces are melded and stitched together to form a unique and beautiful base for your creative stitched designs. Once the lace scraps are turned into a base, I will show you how to dye the base and a variety of ribbons (some silk) that can be later used in the embroidery and ribbon worked vignettes.
Skill Level Advanced or Determined Intermediate: sewing machine, hand sewing, embroidery and at least some ribbonwork knowledge needed.
Lesson 1: This lesson will cover the design of the collaged with bits of lace and silk ribbon that will be stitched onto to a piece of silk for the base. This include machine and hand stitched details.
Lesson 2: In this class we will focus on dyeing the base as well as different techniques that can be used to prepare the ribbons for dyeing.
Lesson 3: This class will focus on the ribbon worked flowers that will become the centerpieces for the floral vignettes. We will cover setting up the vignettes with added bits of dyed appliqués, ribbon scrunched sections, ribbon worked flowers such as the rosette, double edged rosette, berries, fuchsias, hearts, concertina rose, and the prairie lily.
Lesson 4: This class will focus on the silk ribbon embroidery and traditional embroidered stitches that will be worked within and around the vignettes. The stitches that will be covered are the outline stitch, feather stitch, woven rose, Japanese ribbon stitch, lazy daisy stitch, bullion-tipped lazy daisy, couched thread tendrils, and the French knot.
Lesson 5: This class will focus on the extra embellishments that you can add onto your piece such as simple beaded centers, buttons, charms and trinkets. We will also discuss the finishing touches and details that can be added to your project.
The lessons and instructions in this class are written for someone who is experienced with her/his sewing machine, and therefore will be able to understand the information written and be able to adapt that information to their sewing machine if needed.
