Shark Teeth Embellishment Workshop

Have you ever wanted to add a special couture touch to your sewing projects? Well this workshop is for you!

Different arrangements of the embellishment

Jami Roux will be teaching this workshop about fabric Origami (also known as Shark’s Teeth). Participants who complete the class will learn how to create a fabric band embellished with folded and clipped tucks forming a variety of patterns. The embellished band can be inserted into a blouse, skirt, pillowcase or place mat.

Date: April 20, 2019

Time: 10 AM to 4 PM with an hour break for lunch

Location: Best Little Retreat Center

Number of participants: 8


  1. Light weight natural fiber fabric in the amount of the pattern plus ½ yard extra.  Suggested fabrics are cotton batiste or handkerchief linen. Nothing with polyester, since the fabric must hold a crease when pressed. The fabric should be a solid color for the technique to show its best.
  2. Long clear ruler. A quilters rulers with a grid work well.
  3. Marking pencil or pen that disappears with water or heat.  No markers that are set by heat.
  4. Thread to match fabric.
  5. Sewing machine in good working order.
  6. Sharp scissors that cut cleanly to the point.
  7. Basic sewing supplies, such as pins, etc.
  8. A small iron and pressing pad, if you have one (optional).

Pre-class instructions

Preshrink your fabric. The method we will use to create the tucks requires that the fabric be washed after the technique is finished to remove the stiffener that will be used in class.
