Get a brief overview of the different kinds of texture techniques you will learn in this class. Ashley will also show you all of the materials and supplies needed.
Learn how to sew wave tucks. Ashley will show you how to cut, stitch and press your fabric so tucks can be made. She will then demonstrate how the tucks can be made in different areas across a project to make different looks.
Ruffles can be made in several ways and in this session Ashley will demonstrate three different ways. She will show you how to stitch the ruffles as well as different ways to attach a ruffle to a project. She will then show you a project that uses all three kinds of ruffles cohesively.
In this session you will learn how to shirr fabric using elastic thread. Ashley will show you how to mark your fabric and prepare it for stitching. She will then go over the adjustments that need to be made on your sewing machine before using elastic thread.
Learn how to smock fabric in a traditional honeycomb pattern. Ashley demonstrates a smocking method that allows you to make all markings on the wrong side of the fabric while stitching on the right side.
See how to create several different Canadian smocking designs. Ashley will show you how to read a smocking grid pattern, how to prepare your fabric and how to create the stitching pattern.
