It is time for another workshop! During this workshop day, we talked about fabric manipulation. It was a bit tricky and pretty interesting technique. And we made pin cushion with a wrist band.
Voila! My end product! 🙂
The workshop was really fun! We just applied some basic hand stitches to make the band, the materials were given to us by the presenter. All you need: garter, a piece of fabric, thread and needle. Plus skill on hand stitching 🙂
It was pretty easy! But if you really look at our product, the cushion is done with origami style of folding. Well, an origami is a process of folding paper but this time we applied it on fabric! Here are some example of origami folding.
It is a little complicated technique but once you learn doing it, it will be a little easier :)So we did apply this folding technique on a fabric, we used just a simple one for this workshop so it was not really that difficult.
If you can see it clearly, there are folds visible on the top of the cushion 🙂 Inside that folds are some stuffing that we added to achieve the cushion. And there it is your very own pin cushion with the band 🙂
The fabric manipulation workshop was truly fun and interesting. The group was generous in giving out food for the people who worked really fast. It was also comprehensive since they taught the instructions step by step. 🙂 It was over all fun and really enjoyable! Plus something applicable to accessory making 🙂
