Nice To Have:
- Eppiflex Diamond Attic Windows English Paper Piecing Templates
- Fabric - 30cms of the light window frame colour
- Fabric - 30cms of the dark window frame colour
- Fabric - raid your scrap basket for a variety of pieces 2" x 3 1/2", 2" strips or similar are suitable too!
- Fabric for the cushion back
- Glue Pen and refills - not necessary if you prefer to thread baste..I find glue basting much easier and quicker.
- Thread - I love to use both Wonderfil Decobob and Superior Bottomline threads. Wonderfil Invisifil is also a very popular thread for EPP.
- Hand Needles - Jeana Kimball Needles in size 10 are my favourite. They are quite fine but so is the thread and I get less visible stitches with a fine needle and thread.
- Cushion insert - I like to go up a size (50cms) to make the cushion a little more 'plump'
- general sewing supplies such as rotary cutter and mat, fabric scissor and thread snips. Fabric clips are also handy.
- 6 1/2" x 2 1/2" fluro ruler - perfect for using to cut around our EPP shapes
- Rotating Cutting Mat - it makes cutting the fabric much easier!
- 28mm rotary cutter - I find this smaller size easier and lighter to use
- Mini Iron
- Wool Pressing Mat - together with the mini iron, these 2 are great additions to your sewing room and perfect for pressing those smaller seams
