All this week I’m in Chicago at the Summer Craft and Hobby Show. By the time you’re reading this, I’m already set in motion of a crazy day – I’m not complaining, I’m loving every minute! First I have to set up my crafty couture art gown I made (will post pics soon!). Next, I’m teaching this frame workshop, and later in the day, I’m on a social media panel. And the conference hasn’t even started – it kicks off tomorrow! Here are the instructions for the two techniques I’m teaching for the frames!
|1. Yarn swirls. Add glue to surface.
|Start by pressing yarn in place then swirl around.
|It’ll look like this, keep going in different colors and directions and patterns.
|Technique 2: Cut fabric strips to 1-1/2×4″, you’ll also need Fabric Fusion and embroidery thread.
|Add a line of glue along the inside long area and roll the fabric piece lengthwise. Do several of these.
|Join the ends together with the glue, so you have one long strand.
|Tie embroidery thread at the end and wrap around the fabric. Use different colors!
|You can incorporate both techniques into a project, or use them separately!
