 Sewing Machine- (If you do not have your own sewing machine, you may rent one of ours)

  • Machine needles size 10 or 12 universal

  • Seam ripper
  • Straight pins
  • Measuring:  You need a long straight edge such as a yard stick or quilting ruler- a measuring tape can work.  You will benefit from a smaller ruler-a seam gauge or a 6 inch ruler
  • 1yard of cotton fabric or decorator fabric (NO stretchy fabric)
  • Thread to match your fabric or contrast if you prefer (this should be a standard sewing thread such as Gutermann or Coats and Clark- be sure it is NOT embroidery thread)
