Justin Lang, our Sr. Technical Manager of Production & Media Library, shows off his masterpiece
Inspired by the whimsical Craftsy class Snazzy Stitched Portraits, Craftsy employees joined instructor and fiber artist Carol Ann Waugh to make some fanciful faces of their own! While the class guides beginner quilters through making one-of-a-kind portraits from fabric, beads, trims and more, we tried out paper materials for a fun, fast way to create imaginative portrayals.

Snip, glue, create!
Working with paper, scissors, glue, markers, fabric and notions galore, we created our personality-filled self-portraits and had a blast doing it! Even Craftsy CEO John Levisay got in on the action.
