Material and Cutting List
• SEWING ITEMS NEEDED:
Sewing machine in good working order, basic sewing kit with
, pins, rotary cutter and a 6" X 12" ruler. Iron with steam and
small pressing mat will also be needed, as we will be folding and
pressing a good amount.
4 pieces of fabric: 1/3 yard each. Do not get fat 1/3 yards, they
need to be 12" X 36", as you need the length. You will need two
prints and two contrasting fabrics for the two prints.
Contrasting fabrics should be either tone on tone, solid or a less
busy print than the other two printed fabrics. Note that all
four fabrics will be visible - some more than others.
Some form of closure for the front of the Kimono is needed --
Frogs, tassels, buttons, nobs, cape closures or other closure with
or without embellishment. Consider combining items.
Fabric B – outside collar/center strip Cut 10 ½” X 36”
Fabric Y – thin edging around focus fabric Cut 10” X 36”
Fabric Z – focus fabric/main body Cut 9 ¼” X 36”
2. With right sides together, sew fabric A and B along the long side.
3. Press seam toward the smaller piece (fabric B).
4. With right sides together, sew fabric Y and Z along the long side.
5. Press seam toward the smaller piece (fabric Z).
6. Turn right sides out and press again. Try to have equal amounts of fabric A showing on both sides of fabric B, equal amounts of fabric Y on both sides of fabric Z.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ November meeting review of mitten fabric: Fleece Mittens If they would like to make a pair, they wil need a little bit more than 1/4 yard of fleece- to be safe let's say 3/8 yard of fleece. The stretch must be crosswise, so that the stretch runs around the mitten. Also will need 3/4 yard of 1/4 inch wide elastic, I like the cotton Stretch and Sew elastic (used for swimsuits) If the mittens will be lined, they will need an equal amount of lightweight cotton knit for the lining. These amounts will make the largest size mitten. Less will be needed for smaller sizes.
