Sea Glass Art
With Ramona Bateman
Kit Fee: $30.00
*minimum hoop size required for this class is 4x4 inches
We will be making a series of sea glass art applique pieces. I have always loved the look of sea glass and playing with it in applique allows for a bit of fun! We will be using pre-cut pieces I have prepared with my scan n cut for this whimsical project. There are 4 applique designs and a bonus textured heart design. This class is for all skill levels and is a great raw edge applique project, you will learn several methods of how to make this design set. I can't wait to show you some of the other pieces I have made using these same designs!
Kit will include the following supplies: pre-cut sea glass applique pieces; background fabric; wood grain border fabric; USB stick with design and cut files; color run information and complete pattern instructions; *Please note this kit does not include batting, backing or binding fabric, it is not intended to be assembled and completed in class. Our focus in class will be to finish the embroidered applique! You will however have complete instructions for how to do all of this!
