Material List:
  1. Black cotton*, any batting and backing; 50cm x 70cm of each. * Black cotton that already has some sizing or starch is best and please don’t pre wash. Or if you bring 1m of black cotton, you can use half for the top and the other half as backing. If you prefer, the backing can be a bold plain homespun colour such as purple, red or orange or something fun, as students will be encourage to use black bobbin with black thread on top so the design is "drawn" on the back too.
  2. Sewing machine in good working order, Darning foot you must bring & extension table if you have one
  3. Black basic cotton or poly cotton thread – a brand that you know works well on your machine.
  4. Fabric chalk pencil or Ultimate Marker** to trace onto black fabric
