The Dimensional Kaleidoscope Dresden Template book, along with the clear acrylic template changes everything. Make perfect pieces with this tool. I can hardly believe how comfortable I find making these now. I look forward to making all 15 variations!
Making each of the Dresden, or the Dimensional Kaleidoscope Dresden requires minimal fabric. I was able to make mine with some scraps of fabrics, from pieces I got at Nancy's Notions.
Next time I will add the dimension by cutting another set of wedges, and all I have to do is fold the extra wedges, fold them and sew them between each wedge. Easy peasy!
I chose to make pointed the ends of each wedge. The cardboard template (included in the book) makes achieving the perfect score a piece of cake!
I liked the idea of using fusible interfacing to attach the center to conceal the hole in the middle. It is straightforward and quick.
Once I ironed the solid colored circle to cover the hole, I sewed a yo-yo according to the instructions in the book. To complete the look I chose to sew on this button I had been saving for just the right project.With the extra smaller scraps I had left over I had just enough to make two smaller Dresden. The template allows you to make wedges as small as one inch, and as big as 10 inches long.
