Cowls and Pockets Supply List

November 09, 2020

Pre-requisite for this class – you will need to have already made either #104 The Perfect T-Shirt or #116 The Classic T-Shirt Dress. 

You will get patterns for two cowls, three pockets, and a sleeve with cuff – all at no charge!  I am trying this out on you for a pattern release this winter!

Fabric Choices: 

  • Nothing too flimsy - think sweater, sweatshirt, french terry, fleece, ponte.

  • You can make it all from the same fabric or use a contrast.  Some areas for contrast would be: cowl, sleeves, cuff, pockets.  If using the contrast for cowl/cuff/pockets, bring at least ½ yard.  If the sleeve is also a contrast fabric, increase that to at least 1 yd.

 

Pre-Homework:

Cut out your front and back from fabric, stabilize the front shoulder seams with Woven Stay Tape.  Do not cut out the sleeve, we will do that in class.

 

  • For #104 The Perfect T-Shirt – Lengthen/widen the pattern for a tunic.  If you have taken design classes with me, you probably have this in one of the patterns we re-designed.  If not, follow the instructions below.  For the neckline, cut the Scoop Neckline from the template.

  • For #116 The Classic T-Shirt Dress – leave it long for a cozy dress or cut it to a tunic length.

 

Bring To Class:

  • Front and Back of top, cut out and shoulders stabilized

  • Extra fabric for cowls, pockets, and sleeves

  • Pattern

  • Sewing Machine, thread to match fabric

  • Serger, optional – I’ll have a few set up in the classroom with a blending thread color

  • Rotary cutter, ruler, scissors

Cascade Cardi Workshop

November 10, 2020

Cascade Cardi Workshop – Supply List

call/text or email any questions

pamela@pamelaspatterns.com          610-804-1640

 

Suggested Fabric: Good quality knit fabric including polyester, nylon, rayon, cotton, wool blends.
Cardi – 2 yds of 60” wide fabric. Mid weight Ponte, double knit, sweater knit, French terry, sweatshirt fleece, novelties. The single layer front” cascades “ to show the wrong side of the fabric.
SMART TIPS:
 To avoid pilling, choose a Ponte knit with nylon/rayon/lycra as well as Ponte with wool blends or poly/spandex
 Stretch the fabric to make sure it snaps back to the original length. If it doesn’t, don’t use it! Check out Pamela’s Stretch Ruler.
 Knit fabrics, especially ponte or double knit can shrink several inches per yard. Be sure to pre-wash/dry the fabric.
Notions:
 #121 Cascade Cardi or Blazer pattern from Pamela’s Patterns
 Good quality polyester thread to match fabrics
 SewKeyse 1/2" Knit Stay Tape (shoulders)
 SewKeyse 1" Double Sided Fusible Stay Tape (hems)
 Basic sewing supplies
 Wear a sleeveless top or cami
*pattern and stay tapes are available at the workshop.
Sewing Machines:  Sewing Machine (both garments can be made entirely on a sewing machine. However….  A serger is not mandatory, but certainly will make a difference in the finish quality of your garments. You will still need a sewing machine as well. Have the serger threaded for a 4-thread serge with thread that matches/blends with the fabric you choose for the Cascade Cardi.

your machine.  Ample practice time in class to help you practice at home.

 

Supplies :

  •          Walking foot

  • Thread scissors

  • Pencil  

  • Quilting gloves (must fit snugly)

  • hand gel  “Made by Hand” by Mary Ellen --   I prefer this over gloves !!!

  • No. 2 curved basting safety  pins

  • We will share packs of quilting machine needles and then you can see what works best for you.

 

  • You will need a minimum of 4 sandwiches and then  make more as you need.

  • A sandwich is a piece of fabric – right side down , a layer of batting, and a top layer of fabric- right side up.   These can be pressed together or pressed and pin-basted.

  • Fabric for sandwiches – a solid, either light or dark or one on each side.

  • Mettler or Aurifil  cotton thread -- the color must contrast with your fabrics !

  • Batting – warm and natural cotton… you want reasonably thin

  • The fabric – a 1/2 yard for each sandwich :

  • keep the fold in the fabric… place the batting between, and you have a

  • sandwich !!!

  • A yard of batting could give you 8 sandwiches, about 18” x 20”.

  • Your sandwich should be about 18” x 20” – a few inches bigger or smaller will be fine.

Please use good quality cotton and batting --- this will make a big difference in your quilting !
