Sewing 102 : Design, Print & Sew - Envelope Throw Pillows
Instructor: Mariama Davis
Length: 2 hours
Minimum Age: 18+
Minimum Enrollment: 3 students
Maximum Enrollment: 10 students
Don't you love when you walk into a beautifully decorated home and see a quote pillow on the couch that fully resonates the personality of the homeowner? Don't you say to yourself, "Self, I really need one of those pillows for me, but can never find the right quote." No worries, crafty friends. We got you.
This workshop is special because it is a "twofer", just for you. During this 2 hour hands-on class, you'll be Iearning how to press a design of your own devising on fabric at the beginning of the workshop, which you will then turn around and sew into your the quote pillow that represents you. You will learn the in's and out's of the heat press, how to properly apply and use transfer paper, and how to seal your pattern with heat to create a durable, long-lasting carryall. After pressing, you'll turn around and learn how to create envelope throw pillow cases that are both professional looking and quick to make.
Prior to the workshop, we'll contact you to get your design, or will allow you to choose one that we've already created for you to use in the workshop.
While simple sewing knowledge is helpful in this class, both beginners and advanced sewers are welcome. Patterns and step-by-step guides will be on-hand, and your instructor will be there to walk you through individual steps if you need advanced guidance. Because this is not an Intro to the Sewing Machine class, each attendee must know how to spool a bobbin and properly thread a machine.
What to Bring to Class:
All materials are provided in the cost of the workshop.
To join us for this workshop, you must have taken our Intro to the Sewing Machine workshop, or have knowledge on how to properly thread a machine AND spool a bobbin.
