We will work will patterns, layout on fabric, cutting and interfacing, how to prepare the seams, get to know the sewing machine, beginning /finishing seams and how to sew consistent straight or curved lines, how to get sharp corners, trimming seam allowance and pressing to get a professional look. You will be cutting and sewing a fabric basket, a small lined make-up bag and a cushion cover with a zipper.
Materials, sewing machine and tools are all included. However for fabric options you can do the following: You can select fabric for the projects from a small selection that I have on the day; or you are welcome to bring in 0.5 meter of your own 100% cotton fabric (same as is used for quilting) for the cushion; Also Stumer’s have a large selection of fabric for sale that can be bought on the day for use during class.
