I just wrapped up my first class at the Lawrence Arts Center a couple of weeks ago and would like to share some of the wonderful accessories my students created over the course of eight weeks.
Each week was centered around a type of fabric or a specific method. For example, one week we worked exclusively with ribbons, another with cotton fabrics, and another with all recycled materials.
Here are some of the projects completed .... I've seen some of the final projects in process and personally can not wait to see these beauties once they are finished!
Final project: working on composition for the final project - buttons, feathers, rolled ribbon rosettes
Final project: working with vintage velvet petals and burnt edge organza
Final project: trying out the angle of the feather accent on the final project
Designer headband made with feathers, rolled ribbon rosettes, glass beads and netting from a fruit bag
Beautiful petite hair accessories made with a cotton yoyo and a satin ribbon rolled rose
A super luxe burnt edge organza accessory
A stunning buttons, beads, organza and feather brooch and below it a multi layered pleated rose with a velvet yoyo and button accent accessory
A study in contrasts, complex burnt edge organza and designer fabric/vintage button pieces
Three cute headbands for a toddler, using felt, ribbon and cotton yoyo techniques
Using many of the felt techniques from class, one student even made a full sized holiday wreath!

Two of my students sporting Fascinating Fascinators! The Dr. Seuss hat on the left was a great hit at the School Library Fair it was designed for!
I really enjoyed teaching this class.... and I believe the students had a good time too!
