Supplies

Be sure to stop by Firecracker Fabrics – our beautiful and local fabric partner shop, located right inside Cut & Sew Studio and offering all the fabrics, notions, patterns and supplies needed for class!  This summer Firecracker Fabrics is closed to in-person shopping due to COVID-19.  If you choose to shop at Firecracker, purchase all  your supplies online at firecrackerfabrics.com and then your supplies will be waiting for you on the first day of camp!  No need to stop by and make a shopping trip!

We will make 3 projects in the order listed below.  Please have supplies for first project for the first class, then moving forward students should always have the supplies for the current project they are working on as well as the next project in case they finish early.  For summer camps students should bring all supplies to class each day of the week.

PROJECT #1 – PILLOW

  • 1/2 yard Fabric A (must be non-stretch, med-weight woven fabric. No thick fleece,faux-fur, velvet etc. Must be easy fabric for beginner sewer, cotton quilting fabric, canvas or home decor fabric is fine). This fabric will be used for two of the squares on the front of the pillow. It will also be used for half of or the entire back of the pillow.
  • 1/2 yard Fabric B (same notes as above-use contrast or coordinating fabric, whatever you like together!). This fabric will be used for 2 of the squares on the front of the pillow only (possibly ½ of back of the pillow).
  • 1 spool of all-purpose thread to match
  • one 16″ pillow form.

PROJECT #2 – DRAWSTRING BACKPACK

  • 3/4 yard of cotton quilting fabric or similar fabric – non-stretch
  • Grommets – 3/8″ in size (it will say 3/8″ on package) – typically in silver or gold. There will usually be more in the package then needed, but you need 2 sets – so if siblings or friends are in a class together they can share them if it’s a larger package
  • Cord — 4 yards- something to use for drawstring cord (not too thick, about ¼” diameter). (for tiny/short students you will need 3.5 yards only)
  • 1 spool of ALL-PURPOSE thread to match

PROJECT #3 – CHEF’S APRON/CRAFTING APRON

  • .75 yard of 100% cotton quilting fabric non stretch for outside
  • .75 yard 100% cotton quilting fabric non stretch as contrast for inside of apron
  • 1 spool of ALL-PURPOSE thread to match

SOME STUDENTS WHO ARE QUICKER (AND USUALLY OLDER STUDENTS) MAY HAVE ADDITIONAL TIME AT THE END FOR AN EXTRA PROJECT – IF THIS HAPPENS WE CAN DISCUSS OPTIONS FOR ANOTHER PROJECT USING SCRAPS OR YOU CAN CHOOSE TO BRING ADDITIONAL SUPPLIES.
