Past Assignments


We will be sewing for our first time from a pattern making Alphabet Letter Pillows beginning on February 25, 2019 and finishing up our pillows around March 10, 2019. students will need to follow the guidelines in class and shop for their fabrics.  This is a homework assignment and should be done by the student.  The only way they will learn about purchasing fabrics and getting the correct amounts is if they have this experience first hand. The handout attached should help the students to remember the important points we discussed in class.
Students must purchase 1 yard of fabric- stable woven medium weight cotton or cotton blend- 44-45 inches wide.  They should fill out the fabric fact sheet while shopping (at a minimum take a  photo of the end of the bolt) before leaving the fabric store.  Save the receipt!! This becomes important later on for costing the project and is a part of their grade at the completion of the project. 
Students should also purchase Poly-Fiber-Fill for stuffing the pillow. They will need at lease 12 ounces.
Students should bring their fabric to class no later than February 20-21.
Students should bring their Fiber-Fill to class when they need to stuff the pillow (I do not have room for storage).
Students with economic hardships should see me on their own time and we will come up with a plan.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
