Kid's Beginning Sewing 1 (Ages 8-12)

Class Project: Burrito Pillowcase

In addition to the basic supplies listed below, you'll need to bring the following supplies to class:

  • 1/4 yard fabric #1 - cotton or cotton blend fabric
  • 3/4 yard fabric #2 - cotton or cotton blend fabric in a contrasting color or print
  • Spool of cotton or cotton wrapped thread to match your fabric

Basic supply list

  • Fabric shears
    You will want to keep these shears ONLY for cutting fabric. The recommended brand is Fiskars.  They produce good quality, relatively inexpensive and long lasting tools.  Look for "Premier No. 8 Easy Action Bent Scissors" or "8 Inch Original Orange-handled Scissors”

  • Trimming scissors for trimming threads, trimming into tight corners
    Again, Fiskars scissors are recommended.  Look for "Micro-Tip Scissors (No. 5)" or "RazorEdge Micro-Tip Easy Action Shears (6”)".  An alternate recommendation would be Karen Kay Buckley's 4-Inch Perfect Scissors.

  • Straight pins, preferably with glass heads

  • Good quality thread
    Avoid the thread that is sold as part of beginners sewing kits - it will fray and break easily. Recommended brands are Gutermann 100% polyester or 100% cotton, Coats & Clark Dual Duty XP General Purpose Thread and Aurifil Mako 100% cotton.

  • 60" Fabric or plastic measuring tape
    Look for one that has metric on one side and inches on the other.  Avoid ones in retractable cases, they tend to stretch and break easily.

  • 6” metal seam guide with sliding indicator
    For measuring seam allowances

  • Marking pen
    Optional.  Disappearing ink pen is ideal, recommended brand is FriXion ball point pen by Pilot.

  • Sewing box
    Something to keep all your supplies together

Sewing machines are available for loan to students.  Please email or call Blue Bar Quilts at 608-248-9299 prior to the day of class to reserve one for use.
