I’ve been sharing little peeks of what to expect from the new Craftsy class on Facebook and Instagram and then gathering them all up every week here on the blog. There are so many fun things in this one class!
You can read the first round up here. Googly eyes, scrappy pieced backgrounds, silly eyelids, a kajillion uses for a triangle – it’s all there. 🙂
This week we started with silly hair.
I mean, seriously. Those curls have elastic inside so they spring back when you pull on them. How silly is that?
And then I showed how one simple body shape can look totally different, depending on the other bits you add.
My favorite is the one with the purple toenails. 🙂
More fun 3D parts with these teeth.
And then I went really crazy with the 3D additions with these floppy, satin-lined ears. . .
. . . and these folded, softie-style ears.
Update – there’s a tutorial here showing how to add 3D bits to your applique, and one here showing how to give those 3D pieces extra body so they don’t flop too much.
We also cover working with non-traditional fabrics in this class!
We use shaggy faux fur (video here). . .
. . . cuddly fleece (video here). . .
. . . and shiny tissue lamé (video here).
So many fun new techniques in this class!
