Marvelous Mola

Episode DUCT-161

From the Austin, Texas, group Squares, Edie creates a tea cozy using a modern take on the ancient art of mola, a reverse appliqué technique from Latin America. First she shows how to layer the fabrics and trace a design; then she demonstrates how to free-form machine-stitch the pattern and cut away the layers of fabric. Next she shows how to assemble the tea cozy; and finally, she shows off some of her other mola-inspired creations.
