We will be making a broach/shawl pin using zippers, roving, and embellishments. The zipper is sewn by hand onto wool felt, making an outline of a design. The inside is then filled in with wool roving using the technique of needle felting. Then embellishments are added. Students will learn how to prepare a zipper and apply a pattern. Instruction on needle felting will be included in this class, as well as embellishment tips and finishing options. By the end of class students should have a completed broach/shawl pin.
The materials fee includes a how-to book, pattern, backing fabric, prepared zipper, needle and thread, wool roving, felting needles and felting foam, a variety of embellishments, and a pin back.
Participants need to provide sharp scissors.
