£ 14.99 each
  • Description

Learn the beautiful shadow trapunto technique to create two lovely big button brooches with this kit.

Trapunto is a very old quilting technique where the stitching is worked first, and then the spaces filled with wadding or stuffing. By changing the top fabric to a sheer material and adding coloured stuffing, shadow trapunto was born.

The finished work is delicate and pretty - very similar to modern parchment work.

With this kit you will be able to make two beautiful big button brooches.
