Dresden Kaleidoscopes

One of my favorite things to make are Dresden Kaleidoscopes. Here you can see a few of my favorites. They are made with a plastic template that you use to fussy cut 10 blades and sew them into a Dresden Plate pattern. This creates a kaleidoscope effect. So they are called a Dresden Kaleidoscope. These are then appliqued onto a background square usually. I have made them into hotpads and ornaments by backing them and sewing around the edge.

        Here is the link to my website where you can find the directions for making Dresden Kaleidoscopes. You will also be able to download the template. Once you download the template you will need to trace it off onto clear plastic.
