Online Interactive Workshop: Hand-Sewing Crazy Patchwork Memory Heart

It's great to welcome Sarah Payne back for 2021 and in this class you get to exercise your hand-sewing skills via a Heart templated class entitled Crazy Patchwork Memory Heart!

Introduction by Sarah:-

Crazy patchwork was popular in Victorian times when 'well-bred' ladies would piece together random fabrics and then embroider over them. This technique has enjoyed a resurgence in recent years as we appreciate slow-sewing and the importance of re-using and recycling supplies. You can make this into a Memory Heart by making use of scraps of fabric that have personal memories for you. You can keep it simple with your stitches or go full embroidery diva and cover every available space!

So learn a little crazy patchwork and make a romantic heart at the same time. It can be used as a large pin cushion or a small cushion. Add a ribbon and hang it from your wardrobe door or include a scent and pop it in you knicker drawer! How you use it is up to you.

You do not need any specialist equipment or fancy fabrics – simply bash that stash. You just need a pile of pretty fabrics and some threads to have fun. An A4 sized piece of calico will do as a backing fabric. You can mix velvets, silks, cottons, buttons, and lace if you like – there are no rules. You can make your piece into a heart cushion or work it as a square piece. Sarah will show you several different hand stitches that you can use to embellish your piece.

What You Will Learn in this Online Interactive Workshop:-

You will learn how to cut and layer your pieces, how to tack them down and then how to embellish them. Sarah will talk through a variety of different hand stitches that you can try, as well as the use of buttons, beads, ribbon, and lace to embellish your piece. You will also receive a template to create your heart if that is what you choose to do.

This is a hand sewn project so you will be unlikely to finish it in the class, but Sarah will give you details of how to turn your piece into a heart cushion (template supplied).

Skill Level for this Online Interactive Workshop:-

No experience of any kind is needed – jut as long as you can thread a needle!
