Make a fabric picture inspired by herbaceous borders and wild meadows

The day will start with looking at flower inspiration from photos. Freezer paper stencils will be made and leaf shapes stencilled onto fabric. Flowers will be cut from bonded fabric and ironed down as raw edge appliqué. The composition can then be finished with hand or machine sewing as preferred. We will make a design approximately 40cm square.
