Supply List:

Stop by Firecracker Fabrics located right within Cut & Sew Studio, your child can take a look in the studio while they are there as well!  They have a beautiful selection of fabrics, and lots of fun choices for the kids! They know all the projects and will help guide you with your selections which I know can be overwhelming especially if you do not sew yourself! And if you run into problems getting to the store in advance – we can easily help out with getting supplies right before camp too (if possible let me know in advance that you will need to do that!)

We will make 4 projects in the order listed below.
• 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.
• 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
• .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
• 2 to 2 1/2 yards of non-stretch flannel or 100% cotton quilting weight fabric (FOR VERY TINY KIDS WHO MIGHT BE A SIZE XS STUDENTS WILL ONLY NEED ABOUT 1.25 YARDS)
• (quantity needed depends on size/height of student, taller students will need more, shorter students less)
• 1 spool of all-purpose thread to match
• Approx 1 yard of 3/4″ wide elastic- or enough to go around waist comfortably (Can use 1″ elastic as well)
