Machine Trapunto Class: Create Books Covers With Trapunto (Includes Pattern)


Add to cart

This Machines Trapunto class will teach you how to use a sewing machine to make intricate quilting designs, such as trapunto.

In this course I will teach you how to create machine trapunto. I will show you my favourite tips and tricks while creating a book or notebook cover decorated with trapunto. This technique gives the ’breathtaking’ addition to your handmade piece. It is also a perfect opportunity to practise free motion quilting. Here we are going to make a notebook cover, but as a decoration trapunto can be used on several other ways, e.g. on quilts, bags, pillow covers etc.
