• Fabric (Note: ordering this particular hedgehog fabric takes up to two weeks, so plan ahead!)
• Light yellow thread (or light blue if you’re using the fabric with the blue background)
• 1 package of light yellow or blue Double-Fold bias binding. Make sure it’s Double-Fold as opposed to Single-Fold; otherwise it won’t cover the bottom edge correctly. You can use a contrasting color instead if you like.
• Printer (to print the pattern)
• Sewing machine — it’s much easier if you have one, but you can do it by hand too. I used the sewing machine and serger at TECH SHOP in San Francisco. TechShop is an amazing place with all sorts of equipment and machinery you can rent time on: metalworking, woodworking, textile arts, laser cutting and more. I've been a member since 2011. See http://www.nicolaginzler.com/category/my-creative-projects/ for other TechShop projects I've made.
There are just four steps:
1. Buy the materials
2. Cut out the pieces
3. Sew the main part together
4. Sew on the seam binding (the edging piece that goes around the bottom)
Step 1: Buying your fabric
• Go to www.Spoonflower.com and order 1 yard of hedgehog-in-a-teacup fabric with a yellow or blue background.
• The order will take up to two weeks to arrive – Spoonflower does print-on-demand rather than warehousing.
Buy your quilted insulating fabric:
• Go to www.Voguefabrics.com and order 1 yard of ThermaFlec fabric.
• The order will take about 1-1/2 weeks to arrive.
Buy matching thread and matching or contrasting Double-Fold bias binding.
