This time of year we are all looking for fun gift ideas, especially homemade gifts.
Karen Linduska offers a great embellishment technique that is perfect for all sorts of great gift ideas!
Gathered & Twisted Embellishment
Gathered & Twisted is an embellishment technique featured in Karen Linduska’s Decorative Stitching online class at iquilt.com.
During the Gathering & Twisting process you apply a combination of yarns to a background using your sewing machine.
In the sample shown here, Karen shows how to build the layers for different effects.
Use this technique to create a variety of gifts including:
- Gift bags
- Christmas Stockings
- Fun Socks
- Decorative Towels
There are lots of great yarns to play with. We found this one on a trip to Michael’s. It offers several yarns in one skein!
