Stripped Stitched and Heat Zapped Folder Workshop

Spent a bright sunny day with the LOVLEY ladies from Tudor Rose Patchwork shop stitching layers of organza on to pelmet vilene with decorative stitches. They then heating the organza causing the layers to melt together and create stunning texture for their folder fabric.

They worked so hard all morning creating their new fabric, each being very different and unique to its maker. The good bit came after lunch when they nervously applied heat and waited to see what happened as it melted and merged together. We then painted lutradur and soldered out leaves and flowers to apply as decoration. It was hard work and takes a lot of time to create your own fabrics but it was well worth the invested time to get the finished result.
