Here is another fun craft to try 🙂
Choose complimentary fabrics
Cut a square the size you want of a base fabric ( it does not matter what you use as long as it doesn’t stretch as you will not see it when finished)
Cut a triangle of fabric and place in the centre of the large square you just cut for the base fabric. Place the triangle with the right side of the fabric facing the base fabric.
Sew a 1.5cm seam allowance.
Fold triangle of fabric over to hide the seam just created.
Cut a second triangle of fabric.
Place on top of other triangle right side facing down with sides matched.
Sew a 1.5 seam allowance.
Fold triangle over to hide seam just created.
Repeat all around in circles with different fabric triangles. You can add trims and ribbons too.
When your triangles start to overlap the edge of the base fabric, stitch the edges together to secure the layers … Then trim off the excess.
Trim all of the excess to match the base fabric.
I went on to make my piece more elaborate and beautiful by adding lots of embroidery, sequins, beads, Suffolk puffs (yo-yo’s) and other fab textiley stuff. I then made it into a cushion after many hours of labour.
The cushion is on my website in the shop section. 🙂
