Collage Class For Cardinal Equipment List Cardinal Pattern by Emily Woodward Taylor Cardinal Fabric Kit available at Stitched in Schertz. Additional fabrics from your stash. None need to be bigger than 3"x4". Lite Steam a Seam 2 OR Steam a Seam 2 (2 yds of 18” wide) This is enough for the cardinal if you purchase the kit. If you bring more from home you will need more steam a seam. Sharp fabric scissors (blue handle Karen Kay Buckley are the best for collage) Parchment Paper (white, can buy at HEB) NOT FREEZER PAPER Small iron like a travel iron Mini iron (very helpful but not needed if you have the small travel iron, mine is clover brand) Firm pressing pad (like a wool mat, not towels) Pins (I like thin shanked pins) depending on the size of your project you may need a couple of packages Fine point/regular point sharpie (They do make a sharpie with both tips) #2 pencil with eraser Pencil sharpener Rotary cutter and cutting mat Lightboard Pressing Sheet (I prefer goddess sheet) but any will do. Iron cleaner I really like the bo-nash Iron Clean. It doesn’t smell like the paste kind and towel Pinning board (just a bit bigger than your project) A good size is app. 21” square. I use a piece of foam insulation from Home Depot, Lowes etc. that I cut down. The board comes in 8’x 4’ sheets. I cut mine into a 4’ piece then the other 4’ piece into smaller sections. Cover your foam insulation with white or off white felt or low loft batting (this will make it easy to tack iron on the board without melting the board) I use white batting Cover your board then tape the edges of batting to the back of the board. I just use green painters tape. No need for sewing machine or seam ripper for this project!! I am looking forward to seeing each of you in class. The cardinal is a great beginner collage pattern. See you soon, Ammie
