Make a little 5 inch plushie while learning a variety of embroidery stitches. During our first class, we'll go over all the stitches for the surface embroidery. You'll learn Straight Stitch, Backstitch, Chain Stitch, French Knots and Fern Stitch. If you get stuck between classes, we offer help during open hours and during our Sip 'N Stitch nights.
Then, you'll have two weeks to finish the outside embroidery before we meet again. Our second class will show basic pattern piecing and stuffing. You'll complete your bear by the end of the second class.
This class is perfect for adventurous beginners who don't have previous experience but ready to dive right in. These plushies are small and fairly detailed so good eyesight is a must. We will also be working with small eyed needles. If you are feeling a bit more timid, try one of our embroidery 101 classes first!
Class includes one Kiriki Press Bear kit (includes stuffing) as well as hoop, embroidery needle and hand-outs detailing the major stitches.
Please make sure you can attend both class sessions before signing up.
