T-Shirt Cutwork

Workshop Description Bring new life to an old T!  In this workshop we will be using a t-shirt or two from your closet and some botanical inspiration to create beautiful cutwork designs.  I will provide step by step instructions to lead you through creating this project, including design transfer, basic hand stitching and cutting techniques, and how to care for your newly restyled T-shirt.  Materials are not provided.
