You will need scissors, a shirt you no longer with to where, needle and thread. It will be nice if you have a cutting board (I used my mini ironing board.), a pen, a sharpie, a threader for hand needles, a pin cushion.
Step 1: Step 2
Trace around with a sharpie color that will not bleed through when you sew in your seems.
Cut out the pattern (with lace you might want to pin down if you cut both sides at one time.. )
