Patchwork sweatshirt jacket

The Choo Choo Quilters will be making patchwork jackets from sweatshirts and fabric strips this month. The program will be held on Saturday, July 24, 2010 starting at 9:30 a.m. Valleybrook Presbyterian Church in Hixson.

Bring a sweatshirt that is one size larger than you normally wear and the following supplies.
  • Approximately 2 yards of fabrics to coordinate with the color of your sweatshirt (batiks were used in sample) 
  • Cut fabric into strips approximately  2" to 4" wide (for sample, strips in several widths were cut into different shapes: triangles, squares, rectangles, etc.)
  • several fabric glue sticks 

  • scissors 

  • rotary cuter 

  • small cutting board 

  • sewing machine with walking foot 

  • thread to coordinate with fabrics
