Colorful roosters come out of the coop in this class. They range from pastels to wild fabrics or combinations of coordinating colors. I teach you how to combine and choose colors BEFORE cutting into the fabrics. And sometimes we fussy cut holes in the middle of the fabric. Fun!
You'll see how using an overlay with a pressing sheet on a pressing board (Florine's Fabulous Board) can instantly make you an expert using fusible web material. The reversed pieces of the pattern are included with the class fee, as is a see-through overlay of the pattern. You also receive a copy of the pattern, which includes a Simplified AND and an Advanced version of the pattern. We use the Advanced version in the class and that's to prove to you that you are an “expert” on my method when you head home.
With a minimum of 8 classmates, finding the right fabric for your rooster will be easy. We “share a feather” when someone finds it in your stash, or you in theirs.
This class is approximately 5 hours long so we stop to eat a quick lunch at noon. Some students won't stop to eat. It's too much fun and they want to see their finished rooster. Now! Then they take them home, peel it off the pressing sheet and adhere it to the background of their choice.
