In addition to your normal sewing kit (pins, needles, scissors, rotary cuter, ruler etc.) you will need about 16 fat 1/8ths. It is important thing is to have about 16 different but co-ordinating fabrics. Some light, some dark and some medium, but also some small print and a few larger print so you can ‘fussy cut’ to get interesting effects.
For the background you will need 2 metres of fabric that will contrast well with your butterfly fabrics. You won’t need it until about the third session.
Then you will need backing, wadding and binding fabric but this will be discussed as we go along.
