***I WILL BE BRINGING MATCHING TOPSTITCHING THREADS FOR YOU TO USE, BUT IT WILL BE IN A LIMITED SUPPLY.

 

- (3) silicone needle pullers to fit on your thumb, pointer finger and middle finger: visit the additional website address to see a photo. These are not rubber thimbles. Available in Diana’s Etsy shop here.

- Scissors or snips: Remember that TSA allows scissors with a blade length of 4” or less in your carry-on! - shared scissors will also be provided.

- Seam Ripper

- Lots of straight pins

- Sewing Clips: A combination of pins and clips is helpful with this bag pattern.

- Fabric marking pen or pencil: Please visit the additional website address to see an example of the color palette we’ll be using in class. You want to bring a marking pen or pencil color that you can see well.

- Clear ruler approximately 12” in length and no more than 2” wide: We don’t need a large ruler for this class.

- (1) 42” long piece of 1.5” wide seatbelt webbing or you can make your own strapping: Please see photo above
of the River Market Sling you will be making. The body will not be leather as in the photo, but the color will be similar.  Use the colors as a reference to choosing your strapping.

Optional Supplies:
- Clover Embroidery Needle Threader: If you think you may have difficulty threading the needle, this item will help you. It is different from a regular needle threader due to the orientation of the threading head. Available in Diana’s Etsy shop here.
