Go green and gorgeous with the ultimate recycling project! Do you have some favorite wool sweaters or sweatshirts that you no longer wear but just can’t part with or love to search for treasures in a favorite thrift shop? Here’s the perfect project for you! Using the Counterpoints Jacket pattern let me show you how to create a one-of-a-kind jacket using my Template Sets as the collage “puzzle pieces”. We’ll explore the felting process, interfacing, combining colors and textures, and stitch choices for butted seams. What are the various options for closures? And how do you get that perfect neckline fit? From initial sketches to the finished jacket, I’ll show you the step-by-step process of how to make a collage jacket from either felted sweaters or sweatshirts.
This is a lecture/demo class. Students should bring a pen and notebook.
Can also be formatted as a hands-on workshop.
