Zakka: when applied to sewing--taking everyday objects and imbuing them with qualities that bring you joy.

We all have them, we all use them. So let's make them super fun! This workshop for absolute beginners and beyond is all about making something special while learning valuable skills that can be applied to future projects. It's also a perfect example of the inside out and backwards nature of sewing.

We'll make a French seamed trimmed pillow case with your favorite fabric. Once you've made one and get the hang of it, you'll be making them every chance you get. (BTW for those of you more veteran sewers, pillowcases are a great stash-buster!)

Skills Requirement: Must have done a little straight line sewing and be familiar with the basic mechanics of a sewing machine.

Skills Learned:

  • Burrito method of pillow case construction
  • French seams
  • Sewing straight lines and changing direction when sewing
