sewing series: stateside pillow

Ready to practice your patchwork and applique skills?  Join us in the studio this August to make your very own Stateside Pillow by Studio M Squared!

The Stateside Pillow features three stars on the front panel that coordinate with the backing fabric and 11 stripes of accent fabric behind the stars. This adorable pillow is easily customizable for all ages and seasons of the year!  We encourage our students to get creative with their fabric selections to really make this pillow stand out from the rest in your home. This is a great project to use up some fabrics from your fabric stash!

The first class will consist of cutting your fabric and deciding on the patchwork layout, leaving the second class for pillow construction and completion. This 2-week class is suitable for confident beginner to intermediate students who have prior sewing experience.  Students must be able to confidently thread and operate a sewing machine independently.
