Supply List

*Straight pins

*Fabric scissors

*Thread to match each project fabric – please purchase @ Bernina Sewing Center since the kids will be using our machines. This is a better quality thread and will not gunk up our machines.


Day 1 – Medium Size Storage Bin

½ yard of fabric for outside of bag

½ yard of fabric for lining of bag (will be turned down, so will show on the outside)

*½ yard of heavy weight fusible interfacing (double that if your interfacing isn't 45” wide) I used Decor Bond 809, which we sell here at Bernina. I have found this to be an excellent product guaranteeing success with the project.

*Thread to match the lining fabric


Day 2 – Shorts

Shorts pattern available is sizes 5 – 12 (which is a free pattern that I have, will just need to know what size your student requires. Otherwise you may purchase a pattern that has two pieces to the shorts and a waistband.

1 yard cotton fabric (no knits, please

1 yard 3/4” elastic

Large safety pin (a diaper pin works great, if you have one) for threading elastic through

*Thread to match your fabric
*3/4 yard of Swedish Tracing Paper


Day 3 -

16 x12 pillow form

*Either two fat quarters for front & back of pillow OR

½ yard fabric (either two pieces or you can use same fabric for front & back
