Tip the scales in a fun, textural direction with the crocodile stitch! Join Moogly founder Tamara Kelly as she guides you through the steps you need. During class, Tamara starts with techniques for the basic crocodile stitch before moving on to shaping with increases and decreases. Want to try out your new skills? You'll work a fun pillow project as you get some practice working with written patterns. Tamara will even teach you how to work crocodile stitch in the round, create fun edgings and add fabulous embellishments!
