Kids Sewing Supply List

If you are going to attend my sewing class here is some ideas for projects you can make and a supply list needed to make your project.

If you attended my class before then you already know how to use the sewing machine. You can start off sewing anything you want but remember you must bring everything with you - fabric, thread and any notions you need to make your project. If you need help deciding what supplies you need, after you decide what you want to make give me a call and I'll let you know what to bring.

You may bring your sewing machine or you can sew on one of mine.






Here are some of the things you can make and the supplies you will need for your projects. You can make anything you want. Be creative – use things you have around your house – old sheets, clothes, anything you can think of can be made into something new.

PILLOWS

1 yard of fabric, poly fill or pillow form (any size you want), lace trim, buttons or anything you want to decorate your pillows with. Take a picture of yourself – print it on t-shirt transfer paper and iron it on to your pillow. You can use old sheets, clothes ~ be creative.


BLUE JEAN IDEAS

Bag – old jeans, 1 yard liner fabric

Pencil holder – legs of old jeans, 9” zipper Add fabric or patches to the bottom of your jeans – bring your pants, fabric you want to add.




Easy Blanket Make an easy blanket using old T-shirts or any colors/style of fabric. Make it as big or as little as you want. Several yards of fabric are needed depending on how many colors and how big you want to make your blanket. I can help you figure out what you will need for this project. You will need batting and quilt tape for your edges.
