Learn to make cards with fabric scraps


March 25, 2018

Information on using fabric scraps for cardmaking, developing jeans patterns, and using coloring book pages to learn about color will be the featured topics on “Creative Living” on Tuesday at 9:30 p.m. and on Thursday at noon. (All times are Mountain.)

Patty Dunn is going to show how to use fabric scraps and fussy cutting to create unusual personalized cards. She’ll also show how she applies fabric to the card stock. Dunn lives in Corpus Christi, Texas.

Rae Cumbie will review some of the iconic details that make jeans recognizable. Then she’ll demonstrate how to develop a well-fitting pattern, tell what tools are needed, and show how to make multiple pairs of jeans at a time so the techniques become second nature. Cumbie is from Baltimore, Maryland.

Roxane Cerda will introduce a range of coloring books that are unique in that the pages are pulled from the world of quilts and fabric. She says that coloring is not only fun, but it reduces stress and is a good way for everyone to learn more about color combinations. Cerda is in Concord, California.
