Lesley's requirements for Stained Glass Candle Mat

Stained Glass – Circular Candle design


Please bring to the class:-



Background – fat ¼  calico or tone on tone cream

Assortment of Christmas pieces for candles and windowsill

                             green for leaves

                             yellow for flames

                             red for berries

Thread – black cotton

Bias binding:- 2 packs ½” black – soft make (6 metres)

            Or black fabric to cut into bias – plus bias maker or bias   


You can also use iron - on clover bias – approx 6 metres


A piece of wadding and backing fabric will be needed when stained glass is completed.



½ metre freezer paper

propelling pencil

scissors for paper and fabric

pins and hand sewing needles

a polystyrene or cork tile is useful to use a base

notebook and pen




I have also changed the design into a rectangle, to create a window effect. A pale blue/grey/white background would look very effective – with a mix of other colours for the stained glass and candles.





This is a hand sewing class but you are welcome to use a sewing machine
