Online Interactive Workshop: Puffin Pillow Appliqué!

We're delighted to welcome back Sarah Payne in early April where she'll be hosting this fabulous Puffin Pillow Appliqué workshop! Here's the talented lady herslef to tell you all about it!...

Introduction by Sarah:-

This design came to me in a flash of inspiration when I went on a holiday to the Northumberland coast last year. A boat trip to the Farne Islands made me fall in love with these fascinating birds, and I just had to make one for myself. So I set about designing this appliqué project.

This project is a fun and easy introduction to appliqué and is suitable for all levels of experience. I will be showing you how to make this into a pillow or cushion with an envelope back, but you could choose to make it into a panel for a bag or a quilt. I will go through all the options with you during the class. This cute little character is all about fun, fun, fun, so I very much hope you'll grab some scraps and join us!...

What You Will Learn in this Online Interactive Workshop:-

In this class, the areas we'll be covering are as follows:-

  • How to create a basic appliqué design
  • How to give your project a unique personality
  • Simple free motion appliqué
  • Making your design into a cushion or pillow

Skill Level for this Online Interactive Workshop:-

This class is for all levels – including a complete beginner!

Material requirements for this Online Interactive Workshop:-

  • Cushion pad up to 50cm square.

Fabric requirements for this Online Interactive Workshop:-

  • ½ m piece of background fabric – this is to make the Front and Back sections of your pillow.
  • 30 HeatnBond, Bondaweb or similar iron-on adhesive.
  • 50cm piece of wadding
  • Scraps of fabric to make your Puffin. The finished size of the puffin is 10 inches so you will need 2 pieces of fabric for the body measuring about 10 inches square. Plus scraps for the feet and the beak. You can go realistic (black, red, white etc.) or mix it up with unusual fabric combinations (floral, spots, etc.)
  • Sewing thread in black and in yellow.

Equipment requirements for this Online Interactive Workshop:-

  • Free motion embroidery foot. Sewing machine where you can either drop the feed dogs or cover them. Check your manual for details.
  • Iron and ironing mat/board. A small iron is preferable when working with applique so you can avoid burnt fingers, but a large iron can be used if all else fails.
  • Tweezers – to keep those fingers away from that iron!
  • Optional – applique sheet
