quilting series: t-shirt pillow

Make a great gift for a recent grad!  Come and join us in the studio to make a quick and easy keepsake project - we'll turn any graphic t-shirt (college, high school, sports, etc.) into a fun pillow with coordinating fabric borders.  This class is being offered twice this summer, right before students head off to school!

During the first class, students will plan the design of their pillow with our instructor Mandy.  You'll have the ability to customize the border to your liking, resulting in a 16" or 18" pillow (final size depends on your t-shirt size and final design).  The remainder of the class time will include cutting, interfacing, and sewing the pillow to completion with an envelope back.

This 2-part class is suitable for confident beginner sewists who can confidently thread and operate a sewing machine independently and have experience using a rotary cutter.  Graduates of our Quilting 101 or Sewing 201 Intensive classes are encouraged to register for this class!

Required Materials:
- (1) T-Shirt of your choosing
- (1) square pillow insert - either 16" or 18" (wait until after the first class to purchase)
- 5/8 yd of Pellon SF101
- border and pillow back fabric(s) - actual yardage needed will determine on final design.  We recommend 1/4 yard for any fabrics you would like to use on the front of the pillow for border/sashing/cornerstones, and 5/8 yard for your pillow back fabric.
- (1) spool of all-purpose thread

Required Tools:
rotary cutter
acrylic ruler
fabric scissors
chalk or frixion marker
pins or clips
