This fun heirloom project, incorporating a variety of crafty techniques, is all about you and yours! It's not only a great solo project, but it's also a great project to work on as a group for an extra special occasion such as a bridal or baby shower!
In this workshop, you will learn basic transfer, embroidery stitches, and simple machine appliqué. Throughout every step of this project, your designer Kirstyn Cogan will send you on a treasure hunt to add sentimental buttons, pieces of fabric worn by special family members, and anything else you can imagine to create a truly one-of-a-kind family keepsake.
Kirstyn will guide you each step of the way and answer questions if you get stuck. If you know how thread a needle, tie a knot, use a glue gun, and sew straight and zigzag stitches on your sewing machine--you are ready to go. So, let's get going -- have some fun and make YOUR "Family Tree" as a lovely piece of wall art!

Hello! I'm Kirstyn Cogan. Like many of you, I always had crafty adults around and spent A LOT of time crafting as a kid. It was my love of art and craft that morphed into a career in product development and the commercial arts, developing and designing embroidery, applique and surface prints for a wide range of companies and product. My appreciation for craft and this incredible crafting community has only deepened over time and I'm happy to join you all here on Craftsy!
