In this class, we’re going to dig deeper into the creative world of sewing by completing a different project every 2-4 weeks. The goal is to inspire independent work at home where they can confidently reproduce what we have been working on in class. We will talk about how to find skill-appropriate patterns to use, how to read them, how to measure your body for apparel patterns, and how to upcycle!

Project #2 – Zip up pouch (2-week project) – (2) ½ yard cuts of different, but coordinating, 100% cotton fabric or 2 fat quarters, coordinating thread, 9” zipper to match the exterior fabric
