Stanton Hoodie Class Description and Supply List
Cashmerette Patterns designs patterns to fit women of all sizes and shapes – something you don’t often find in a hoodie pattern! The pattern comes in sizes 0 – 32. Cashmerette even provides a size calculator to help you choose the size(s) for your best fit and to simplify any pattern adjustments you choose to make. Because this is a sweatshirt, you only need to make a few simple modifications once you select your base size, such as length adjustments. The pattern has a pullover and zip up version. For this class, I strongly recommend that you start with the pullover version. I will not take class time to demonstrate the zipper installation. You do not have to have a serger to make this sweatshirt, but if you have one, I recommend you bring it as well as your sewing machine. For those of you who don’t have a serger, I will set one up in the classroom with a neutral-colored thread.
Bring your pattern and cutting tools to the first class session, including a ruler for layout, a non-permanent marking tool that will show on your material, such as a frixion pen, chalk and/or a disappearing marker, a measuring tape, pins, sharp scissors and a rotary cutter. We will make any pattern modifications and cut out your hoodie in this first. Time permitting, we will begin construction. Be prepared to do some independent homework so we can finish this hoodie in the allotted time.
Sewing Level: Advanced Beginner
Functioning Sewing Machine, with bobbin loaded with matching thread. I recommend all-purpose polyester thread.
Serger with matching thread (optional)
Ruler for pattern adjustments and layout

Pins and/or clips (I use both in almost every project)
Sharp scissors and a rotary cutter if you use one to cut out your patterns
Recommended Fabric (See pattern for amounts required for your size. I always recommend erring on the side of getting a little extra just in case. And don’t forget to get more if your fabric is directional):
Main Fabric: sweatshirt fleece, fleece, french terry, ponte or any mid to heavy weight knit fabrics - requires at least 15% cross wise stretch.
Lining: light weight knit fabric such as jersey or ITY
Ribbing: knit ribbed fabric for cuffs and band (either tubular or by the yard)
Interfacing: small pieces of midweight fusible interfacing for grommet installation; light to mid-weight fusible for zipper shield in view b (optional).

Ballpoint or stretch needle
18" (45cm) of 3/8" (1cm) wide twill tape

Winterberries Table Runner or Placemats
This project is from the book “Build a Quilt on Your Embroidery Machine” by Amelie Scott designs. The book is included in the price of the class and contains 9 additional projects. I will guide you through the process for either 4 place mats (each 12” x 18”) or one table runner (12” x 36”). If you would prefer a larger runner, you will need 1 1/4 yards each of front and backing fabrics and additional batting. For the backing fabric, I used fabric from Moda’s WARM WINTER WISHES collection which is available at Steve’s in several stunning colorways. The pattern of this fabric complements the Winterberries embroidery design
