Day 1 of the Crazy Lady’s Guide to Piecing

Here are some examples from the first day of Crazy Lady’s Guide to Piecing class that I am currently teaching from Joggles.

This lesson focused on using a triangle as the center, and working out form there. I gave the students many examples on how to get yourself out of those OH-OH moments, plus what to do with left-overs by making Prairie Points and Yo-Yo’s.

Day 1 and 2 of Ocean Rivers Class

Ocean Rivers is a class that I am currently teaching at Joggles.com. The project is a bracelet with buttons as the focal point. These are embellished with freeform peyote stitch embroidery.

This is the example of the base of the bracelet from the first day.

This is a really fun and unique way of bead-embroidery, using this traditional stitch to embellish and encrust a ribbon bracelet.
