Learn how to use cotton or cotton blend clothesline to make platters, purses or baskets! We’ll start with a coaster and move on to a large basket! Those who have embroidery machines will design the bottom with embroidery and those with regular machines will do applique.

Pre-requisites: You must know how to use your sewing machine. This is not a beginner class.  Your machine must be in good working order before class and please bring all power cords, foot controller and regular Z-Z foot along with all supplies on the supply list. We do have needles and thread, pressure feet and clips at our store if needed.

Supply List:

  • 1/4″ x 200ft (0.6cm x 60.8m) of multipurpose 100% cotton or cotton blend sash cord or rope- please bring extra to practice with and make a coaster, just 3-4 yards extra will do. You can get the clothesline rope at most Walmarts, Targets, HEB, or Amazon.
  • Scotch tape
  • 1/2 to 1 meter or yard of fabric cut into 1″ bias fabric strips. You do not have to wrap rope in fabric.
  • tape measure
  • lots of thread and bobbins with the color of choice. I use all-purpose thread. I’d wind about 5   bobbins before class. I also chose a color that matched the rope, but you can use a contrasting thread.
  • sewing pins – just a few
  • sewing machine in good working order and all power cords.
  • Regular pressure foot.
  • Denim size 14-16 needles or Microtex size 14-16 needles. One full pack of 5
  • scissors – fabric scissors and thread scissors.
  • Clips to keep fabric on rope, if you choose to add fabric.
