Welcome to our “play date” where we will be exploring how to adapt patterns to create 3-D objects.
Our initial explorations were focused on traditional 3-D needlework objects such as Biscornu, Humbug, Pyramid, etc. Here are some photos from our early explorations of traditional 3-D needlework objects. Please come back to see more of these type of 3-D objects.
Martha Hill created this Humbug from a name tag pattern:
Our explorations will now go beyond the traditional ones. Our initial discussion topics in this phase of the exploration are:
- Introduction to 3-D objects – What is a 3-D object? (discussion about the various definitions)
- Types of 3-D objects
- How each geometric shape can be used to make a 3-D object
- Different ways to turn the objects into “tools”
- How to adapt your patterns for use with 3-D objects
- References and books about 3-D objects
For a teaser – one of the first ones I am exploring is a “star-shaped” object!
Click on each of the discussion topics to read about our explorations on that topic. We hope you will join in our discussions – we look forward to hearing from you.
Please let us know what other discussion topics you would like to see us explore
Happy stitching and come back soon to see what 3-D objects/shapes are being explored and what patterns have been adapted
