There are 3 basic techniques that I will cover: puffs, scrunching, and cording. So that I can show multiple process pictures I will post each technique in its own little tutorial. A fourth post will cover some handstitching I did on the piece and the method I used to finish the piece.
The first technique is making the little puffs.
Make as many or as few as you want. Make them different sizes. I tried to make the puffs in areas of the fabric where there were spots of different colors. That really made the puffs stand out when finished.
1. First iron the fabric because you want all the wrinkles in it to be intentional.
The second technique is the scrunching. We'll work on that tomorrow
