    Sewing Project Supplies - Family and Consumer Sciences I Course

     Old T-Shirt

       o The decal on your shirt will be used to be the front design of your pillow (see project photos on Family and Consumer Sciences I page of my website).

       o The decal you plan on using should be about 8 inches in width.

       o If decal is larger than 8 inches, more material is required (explained below).


    1 Yard of Fabric

       o COTTON OR FLANEL, solid or print – something to match your t-shirt color/decal.

       o 1 ½ yards will be needed if design is larger than 8 inches.

    NO fleece, extra stretchy and/or sequined material!

    If you purchase this, it cannot be used for the project.


    One Spool of All Purpose Thread

       o Thread color - match the main color in the 1 yard of fabric (it’s okay if your t-shirt is another color). 

       o Be sure to purchase "ALL PURPOSE" Thread.



    Pillow Stuffing

       o 1 bag of 100% Polyester Fill Pillow Stuffing (10 - 16oz bag, NO larger)

    When you go to a store to purchase your supplies - bring a hard copy of this supply list and if needed, ask a store attendant to help you get the supplies and/or check that you have the proper supplies. This will save you time, money and from being stressed. It will also ensure that you purchase items correctly. If you have a money and/or transportation issues/concerns with getting these supplies then please see me privately after the discussion of the project. I will help you but you have to communicate this with me.
