 Fabrics that go together

any size between 4’ sq to 8”-9” sq is good to start

Iron and ironing board

Pencil and Sharpie marker

Scissors

Blue painters tape (or scotch tape if that’s what you have)

A translucent Teflon pressing sheet (only if you have one)

And

Your pattern.

 

 

CHOOSING A PATTERN:

 

Print out the Seahorse pattern that is attached below.

If you don’t have a printer or prefer a different pattern, use one you have on hand. 

… something simple and about 8”-10” like the seahorse.

 

 

CHOOSING FABRIC

 

Decide if you want to try Laura Heine’s Motif or Painterly Collage Style or if you’d like to cut shapes out of solids & fabrics that read solid.

Motif/Floral Collage:

Choose fabrics with small designs and/or flowers you can cut out

Painterly or Solid Color Collage:

Batiks are good – and so are any print fabrics that read solid

 

 

There are so so many different types of fabric collage, so for a place to start  Laura Heine and Laura Wasilowski are popular.  These two collage artists have good techniques, & fun styles.

 

Below are some links to see their techniques and styles – at the Chapter meeting we’ll be working in a Laura Heine style, but with Wasilowski techniques too.

If your collage is fairly small and not very dense, your needle may be just fine.

Or – you can buy the Anti-glue needles from Klasse
