This covered box, surrounded with brightly colored flowers, was inspired by an embroidered ribbon. The flowers are delicately appointed with beads and the box is large enough to house a purse, hairband and barrette accessories, or any embroidery smalls. Class includes dimensional appliqué techniques, such as the tack stitch and Deborah’s own needle slanting techniques and fabric manipulation methods. Box construction will be fully discussed. Students will learn the secrets of creating uniformity in surface work by stitching in a specific order.
