This is a new class that I just finished teaching at Joggles, it is called the Textured and Treated Reticule. This was a three-week course to make this four sided purse, though some students opted to make a wall hanging.
In Lesson 2 novelty yarns were applied by machine, and Kreinik’s Fine Braid #8 was used in the bobbin. Machine made metallic vines and tendrils were made with Sulky metallic threads, then were and added to the base. Finally hand stitched rayon cord and hand-made twisted cords made from novelty yarns were added for more texture.
In Lesson 3 fabric yo-yos were made and stitched to the surface; shisha mirrors were embroidered around the mirrors. Hand embroidery using YLI’s Candlelight threads and Kreinik’s Fine Braid #8 was stitched in a variety of raised and textured techniques. Buttons and charms and bead embroidery are added to finish the embellishments.
Happy Stitching ~ Christen
