Jane Schofield - Heartstitch

Butterflies

The perfect way to upcycle colourful scraps and offcuts to make something gorgeous, using the simplest of stitches – running stitch. Fabric, felt and tweed are just some of the materials you can use but old text books and programmes can look stunning. Garlands can also be hung vertically as well as horizontally, they can be hand sewn or machine stitched and you can take any shape (flowers and leaves work particularly well) and sew through it. Come and gave a go at hand stitching a mini garland– you will love it!
