Embellish It! Embroidery Techniques to Use on Crochet and Knit Fabrics with Shannon & Jason Mullett-Bowlsby
Your project is finished and all the blocking, seaming, and weaving in of ends is done. But something is missing... just a little pop of color or maybe an edging or decoration here or there. We can help you with that! In this class, we’ll use traditional embroidery techniques in a new and exciting way to take your crochet and knitting projects to the next level. Using needle and tambour embroidery techniques we will show you how to use hand-made surface designs to give your projects some FAB factor. Add a little for a touch of flare to borders and seams or go full-on FAB with exciting color designs that are only limited by your imagination (or the templates you can find). You’ll learn how to make beautiful faux seams and edgings that both enhance and elevate your crochet and knitting projects.
