Skill level: Beginner - Intro to sewing

Come make a cool throw pillow with us and upcycle fabric scraps from our studio! In this class, we design an artistic applique to be attached to the surface of our pillows. You’ll get to choose from our selections of fabrics and create your motif. Then we’ll learn how to sew in an invisible zipper and construct the pillow! Once you learn how to make one, you can make many more! This class comes with all fabric, zipper, and pillow insert included.

However, If you have a fabric at home you would like to use, please email a picture of the fabric, state the weave and fiber content (avoid knits and shiny fabrics here) to email@example.com. We can let you know if it’s appropriate for the project and coordinate the use of it. You may need to come early to allow the instructor to help you cut your fabric.
