Upcycled T-Shirt: Alabama Chanin Style Workshop
February 15 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm$45
Spring—and spring cleaning—is just around the corner! If you’ve got a favorite t-shirt that’s too worn-out to wear, but you can’t bear to toss it, upcycle it—the Alabama Chanin way!
In this fun and budget-friendly workshop, you’ll learn how to turn old, worn-out or damaged t-shirts into something you’ll love to wear again—maybe even more than you did originally! Fiber artist, Julie Bagamary, will show you how to create a unique stencil for your project first. Then, you’ll use fabric paint to transfer your pattern onto your shirt. Finally, you’ll reverse applique your design, by hand, using a simple embroidery stitch, and watch as your t-shirt transforms into a stylish “new” garment! No access to, or knowledge of, machine sewing necessary!
While you probably won’t finish your piece during the class, you’ll leave with the inspiration and confidence to do so at home—and spruce up the rest of your wardrobe as well!
