Fabric must be chosen when booking your place, You will need 1/2 yard for the tote bag and another 1/2 yard for cushion and small pouch. These can be the same fabric or 2 different sorts. A selection of zips and thread will be brought to class to chose from for your project. Please browse the store then write your selection in the message box below.
Please not that if you wish to stamp, stencil or paint a design on your items a plain light colour fabric is recomended. For this part of the class the projects will be made up first them decorated as the paint take 6-8 hours to dry, then must be heat set with an iron before use and washing. This part is completly optional as you can chose a printed fabric for the projects and forgo the painting.
You can chose any fabric from the store, this includes licensed, branded and themed. I'm afraid that panels, fat quarter bundles, jersey and fleece are not included for this class as well as polycotton fabric.
Lesson plan: After collecting your fabric and chosing your zips and thread. The first project we will start with is the tote bag. After cutting and sewing we will have a short break before starting the cushion, this will include inserting a zipper before sewing up. The last part will be the small pouch with a lining. This piece will have a wadding core thats to be stitched to the outer pieces and zippered closure. Once the projects are completed people with the plain fabric can have a go at decorating your items. Again this is an added option and those not wishing to participate may relax with a cuppa and observe the others.
This class is for beginners and anyone that wants to brush up on there skills, maybe you are completely new to the craft and wish to meet like minded people. I pride myself on making the class fun and open, with an easy going pace and no worries sewing.
Remember to add 1or 2 fabrics in you messages box before purchasing.
