Some notes from the tutor
There are 3 patterns marked as "Advanced" with a big amount of circles in the pattern. Sewing these
patterns takes more time, so I would recommend them for those builders, who feel comfortable with
lots of "appliqué" sewing. It's to make sure everybody will finish their kites during the workshop.
I personally do not use any "circular sewing attachments" for sewing the circles, to avoid making holes in the fabric.
With some practise you can really make perfect circles using your hands and sewing machine only ;)
However, if someone is familiar with this kind of equipment and would like to use it
- that is fine, it makes the circles sewing process easier, but… holes in the fabric.
For colour choices please see the chart below.
Neon pink, neon orange and skin colours are NOT available.
