Bordering on the Comical

Bordering On The Comical Day one is spent making the scrappy centre and bordering it ready for the beastie.

Day two is for applique, machine embroidery, fabric painting or whatever it takes to achieve the look.

Elements taught include chain piecing, measuring for borders, applique and sewing machine skills.

Patterns for three beasties - the cat, rabbit or clown are available in this class. 

By utilising a pre-made centre to similar dimensions this could be run as a one-day class.
