I was asked to do a tutorial on my Dresden Kaleidoscopes. I can give you the very basics.
I do send out free templates for this if you send me your postal address in a pm.
Here is the fabric I used for this lesson
Trace the elements in the fabric
onto the clear plastic template
so you can see to place it on the
Trace around the template for the blade
Here is the template so you
can see my tracing.
Place the template on the next repeat
match the tracing to the elements on the fabric
Trace around the template
Here you can see where the repeats are
Okay cut out the blades and sew them together
Here you can see 4 blades sewn together
and the design starts to show up
You will need 10 blades if you use my templates.
I like to sew 5 together and then trim if need be to have a straight edge
then sew both halves together.
Here are a few of my dresden kaleidoscopes
This one was roosters
this one was cats and the
center looks like a spider to me
but it is really cat tails
