This beginner level class will get you comfortable with sewing from a commercial pattern. This class teaches you how to cut out a pattern, make sense of the instructions, and construct a finished well-fit garment. You’ll walk away from the 3 week course with 2 items made by you: choice of a tote bag (week 1 & first half of week 2) and a drawstring skirt OR pajama pant (second half of week 2 & week 3). The sewing patterns used in class are yours to keep for future projects. No previous sewing experience is required but ability to thread a machine is helpful.
For this class you will need to supply: (All fabric should be washed and pre-shrunk)
- Tote: 3⁄4 yard heavier-weight fabric for outside of bag and 1⁄2 yard lighter-weight cotton fabric for inside lining of bag, matching thread. Please bring to first class!
- Skirt: 1.5 yards of a light weight cotton or jersey and 1.5 yards of 1" elastic banding **OR**
- Pajamas: 2 5/8 yards of cotton or Flannel and 1 1/2 yards of 1/2" elastic banding
- 1 spool of thread to match your fabrics
Limited notions (zippers, thread, pins, etc) are available at Owl & Thistle at an additional charge.
