The Hand Stitch as a Brush Stroke

  • Bag of scraps
    • Bring your own
    • Another option is to look online & buy a packet of like fabric pieces
    • Fabric stores often have small packages of like fabric
    • Bring a few fat quarters that read as a solid. Make sure to include light, dark & medium
  • ½ of natural color 7 oz. unprimed canvas duck cloth & 1/2 yd. of black duck cloth
  • Clothing you would like to add some stitching
  • Art paper that can be stitched through
  • Linen, cotton, silk clothing to cut up & use as scraps
  • A variety of small amounts of sheer fabric
  • Sewing tools:
    • Scissors
    • Needles that fit your thread
    • Pearl cotton—size 8 or 12 works well (I don’t recommend embroidery floss.)
    • Needle threader
    • Needle grabber
    • Straight pins
    • Any other tools you enjoy using
