Pattern Design: Students will create and customise a tee! This shirt pattern has a sloppy joe style and depending on your skill level and creativity you'll embellish by cutting slits, slashing, weaving, putting in gathers, a drawstring or adding extra decorative stitching. Prior to cutting out our marked pattern pieces, we'll also screen print the fabric. We'll teach just what you need to know to walk out with a finished garment at the end of the day. We know that achieving results is an important part of keeping teen sewers motivated to continue!
Notes On Supplies: You must choose knit fabric with at least 30% stretch in both directions. Synthetic fibres need to be below 15% as we will be heat setting the ink and highly synthic fabrics will scorch. You could have contrasting fabric for sleeves and contrasting panels. Additional embellishments like elastic trims and ribbons for decorative details can be included . For directional prints or large prints you should purchase extra fabric. For best results - pre-wash your fabric to reduce shrinkage.

Thread Den has the BEST sewing classes for kids. I'm 10 years old and people don't believe me when I tell them that I made my T-shirt and bag (from a different class at Thread Den). I can't wait to do another class with them.
