Materials List for Collage Appliqué Fish/Reptile Project


A variety of plain and patterned pieces of fabric in rich colors suitable for a fish, frog or reptile pattern. Hand dyes, batiks, Kaffe, small scale prints, textures are good. Colors to match your photo if bringing own photo. You only need small pieces, scraps work great, sharing and community fabrics are fun. Bring a variety esp if choosing the pattern at the class.
