Have you ever wondered how you could use your sewing machine to draw?  We will be learning the art of sewing illustration.  This technique involves tracing and transferring small artwork to a stick-n-wash away paper.  Then cutting small pieces of fabric and sewing them on with black thread to outline your illustration.  I will have a kit which include an illustration and paper needed to complete a 4 1/2" square which can then be placed into the front of a cosmetic bag.  The cosmetic bag uses the quilt as you go method.  Come prepared to learn both sewing illustration and quilt as you go techniques!
