This class is for absolute beginners! You’ll learn the very basics to get you comfortable and started on your sewing journey. We’ll start with a very brief overview and how to thread the machine and wind a bobbin.

In the class we’ll make a pillowcase for a standard size pillow, with finished measurements of approximately 73cm by 50cm. The seams are all straight lines, so perfect for a beginner!

If possible it’s recommended to prewash your fabric. If you want to use a directional print for your main fabric you’ll need 1.2 meters.

  • Skill Level: Beginner
  • Materials Required: .75 meter of main fabric, .5 meter of contrast fabric (cotton, non directional fabric is recommended), coordinating thread, sewing kit of pins, scissors and seam ripper
