Using the 'mola' or reverse appliqué technique, we will layer fabrics over a base of metal, machine stitch (free or with the feed dogs up) our design and then cut back through the layers to reveal colours we have hidden and finally the metal layer at the bottom. Then add more stitch and beads to enhance the surface.
