Curve-y Flow-y Breeze-y Flower with Vivian Benton

Class Title: Curve-y Flow-y Breeze-y Flowercurvy-flower

Teacher:   Vivian Benton

Class Day/Time:

Saturday, 1:00 to 5:30 pm

Class Length: 4 1/2  hours

Class Fee:  $45.00

Class Description:

If you’re wondering how a flower that looks so complicated to make can be easy, well wonder no more; this lovely flowing flower is completely fused so it’s a breeze to make. This means no sewing machines required. You’ll receive a full-size pattern approximately 24” x 36”) from which to draw and cut your pieces. You’ll fuse these pieces onto your background fabric to create a flower that will make you proud. For those who don’t like raw edges, Vivian will provide guidance on how to topstitch your flower (no time in class to do this). (Beginners welcome.)


Registration necessary; class size limited to 14


Supplies Needed:

1 yard for background fabric

4 fabrics for flower (1 yard of floral fabric; ½ yard of dark rust or dark fabric of your choice to coordinate with the floral; 1 fat quarter each of remaining two fabrics (one should be for the leaves). Bringing extra fabrics/colors is always a good idea!

2 yards of fusible web (preferably EZ Steam II; Steam-a-Seam 2 works well, too.)

Iron (travel iron works best) and ironing mat

Power strip (just in case)

A pencil for tracing pattern onto background and a pen for drawing pattern pieces.

Scissors (paper and fabric)


Materials Fee: $5.00 (payable in class to teacher) for full-size pattern.
