Creating: Learn to Sew Class Week 1

I got into the Miami Dade College sewing class Learn to Sew Summer 2013.  The original teacher scheduled for the class decided  not to teach it and lucky for me  the new teacher Rucht D'Oleo decided to take the class.  When I found out she was the teacher I was excited!  She is a professional in the fashion industry.

The class supply list is as follows:

  1. Pins and hand sewing needles with cushion
  2. Dotted pattern paper (this one has been challenging to find a source, so I don't have any yet.)
  3. Fabric scissors and paper scissors
  4. Seam ripper
  5. Threads
  6. Thread clipper
  7.  Curve and straight rulers
  8. Tape measurement
  9. Transparent tape
  10. Mechanical pencil 07
  11. Notcher ( still need to get this)
  12. Tailor chalk
  13.  5 yards of Muslin fabric
  14. Tracing wheel (plan on getting a better one)

*Loop tuner
*3 yards of your favorite fabric for the last project
* pattern hangers
*suggested but not required 

The homework is to practice measuring figures and  sewing straight lines on muslin.
