Sewing Lesson: We’re going to make Heart Pillows for Riverview Cancer Center! These are both comforting and functional. You can use a variety of fabrics that are soft to the touch: cotton, fleece, microfiber, flannel, or velvet.
You will need two 16″ x 20″ pieces of washable fabric; please prewash ahead of time. The two fabrics don’t have to be the same, and you can play with fun and cheerful combinations. Plus bring coordinating thread to match. We will also have some fabric ready for you to use.
Because of Copyright, we can’t post the pattern on the website, but it will be available at our Creative Workshop.

2 – 4 colors of worsted weight (group 4) yarn

We will go over the basics of the granny square, including how to make it square, good corners, changing colors, and the finishing round. Granny squares can be made in multiple colors or even just one! Great way to use up those odds and ends, leftovers, and scraps of yarn. We will discuss the many uses of granny squares – from scarves to sweaters and everything else in between.
