CLASS DESCRIPTION: Gather up your cherished fabric bits and make some playful, spirited, scrappy art!  Use fabrics and fibers as “paint” to create simple imagery on a vertical, 12” x 40” surface making a raw edge, colorful, textile art piece.  Without a pattern, use freeform shapes to intuitively create free form simple hand cut words, fussy cut fabric imagery, embellishments, fringe and decorative fibers to complete a truly unique and impressive artwork.  Take home this finished masterpiece ready to hang and display proudly anywhere, on your front door or to be gifted to someone special! 



  • COLORFUL SCRAP FABRIC In 4-5 gallon size zip lock bags - bring your own colorful scrap fabrics at (not super tiny, at least 3” in size), of your favorite colors in assorted sizes to use as a “palette”. Bring colorful prints and solids, patterns, flowers, birds, etc., as well as any images (think Tula Pink’s fun imagery and creatures!) on fat quarters or yardage.  Think creative.
  • QUILT SANDWICH Use 3/4 yard muslin fabric (45”wide) - white or natural and 3/4 yard of fusible fleece or cotton quilt batting to bring a quilt sandwich that is 15" wide x 42" long
  • EMBELLISHMENTS If you have available, bring along textured yarns, ribbons and fiber scraps.
  • GOOD SCISSORS! You’ll also need good scissors (Karen Kay Buckley brand- light blue handles- are the best!)
  • GLUE STICKS 2 glue sticks ( Elmers school glue sticks suggested)
