|Jodie Davis and Ashley Briggs|
Join Jodie Davis and Ashley Briggs as they show you how to “paint” a portrait of your pet in fabric with this easier-then-it-looks technique. Starting with a photo as a template, Jodie walks you through tracing shapes from the photo onto fusible web, fusing them, and then finishing the edges to make a unique fabric image of your pet. You will be surprised at how realistic it looks!
In this webinar, you will learn how to:
- Choose areas of your pet photo to trace, overlap sections for gap-free appliqué, and trace them onto fusible web for a pattern
- Layer and fuse the shapes for accuracy using a homemade lightbox
- Finish the edges of your appliqué shapes in one of three ways, in addition to satin stitching
Watch as Jodie guides Ashley in her first thread painting project – you’ll get a first-hand look at the learning process. Although thread painting looks complicated, rest assured that it is forgiving, much easier than it looks, and tons of fun!
You can see examples of some of the projects below.
