Echoing Shapes Improvisational Fabric Design 

Jennifer Bernard will lead a workshop featuring creative ways to turn a sweatshirt into a fun jacket, or embellishing a ready made jean jacket with shapes and buttons. The class will alter sweatshirts to open down the front, bias bind the edges, and extend the hem with piecing.

Those attending can choose from four basic shapes — a heart, leaf, flower, or wonky square. Those shapes will be cut into smaller and smaller echoes, and will be scattered over the jacket, and iron fused them in place. The edges of the shapes will then get finished with a zigzag or buttonhole stitch. Rickrack, bias stems, and buttons can also be added as the inspiration guides you! Jennifer will also cover making pockets from the shapes, adding cuffs to sleeves, improving fit, and how to add a zipper. Cost to attend is $100.
