Taught by Rebecca Ringquist
Combine bright floral patterns and vintage embroidery to create a fabric collage bursting with texture and pattern. Rebecca shows how to create a loose, freeform style of embroidery where more is more. She demonstrates how to blend different fabric prints as a base, then add vintage trims and embroideries – and she teaches several floral stitch patterns that add density and dimension. Once you’re finished embroidering, hang your finished collage on a wall or incorporate it into a sewing project such as a pillow or bag that needs some cheer.
