Fingertip Gloves with teacher Deborah Tirico is a study in dimensional wool appliqué, embroidery embellishment and glove construction.
These fun fingertip gloves keep your hands warm while you still have the capability of using your fingertips for cell phones and tablets. The gloves are a smooth fit and feature a Velcro closed (displayed as a button) at the wrist to secure a great fit. Students can choose from four colorways and adjust the fit per their own hands.
The wool appliqué design is dimensional and embellished with a few beads and Week’s Dye Works lamb’s wool thread. The glove construction is done with a bright #8 Perle making the stitching easier to see and fun to do.
This class will include techniques on dimensional appliqué, embroidery guides, appliqué placement guides, a variety of surface stitch combinations and glove construction. Students will learn appliqué methods including the tack stitch, Deborah’s own needle slanting techniques and fabric manipulation methods for adding dimension to the work. Tools that make working in felted wool easy and fun will be made available. Glove construction will be fully discussed.
This is an excellent opportunity to learn wool appliqué with a fun little project!
