A Coat of Many Styles

"Drama at the Opera" Coat created using DCWV, Stamping Up and Anna Griffin.
"The Florist's Coat" This version in Tilda "Corner Shop" paper stack collection.
"Peacock Garden Coat" This version created using Graphic 45 Couture.


This coming Sunday  2nd March, I am running a workshop in conjunction with A White Dragon Papercraft called “A Coat of Many Styles” at the Irish Club of Canberra. Coats and jackets are a fantastic way to show case paper quilting techniques and they are just so versatile.

In this workshop we will look at taking one simple shape – the coat. We will then be using our favourite Paper Quilting techniques (such as Just Squares, Strips, Crazy, Scrap or Applique), to turn this simple shape into something simply extraordinary.

The coat will become an oriental tunic or a beautiful coat inspired by fantasy or high fashion. Mix and match the design parts such as boarder hem lines, cuffs and decorative shapes within the coat. This Paper Quilt can be as simple or as complex as you like, so it is possible to create more than one during the workshop.  The pattern is one which can be adapted and used again and again to create pictures your friends and family will love.

The finished Paper Quilt will fit into a scrap book page frame 30 x 30cm square  or 20 x 25cm rectangle frame.
I look forward to seeing all the fabulous and unique coat creations made on the day and look forward to bringing you all the pictures from the day next week.
Please email if you would like to attend.
Bye for now
