Sew a Pocket Pillow


 

4-H at home activity:  Sewing a pocket pillow 

This project is a cross between quilting and dimensional sewing. You will be making a handy pocket travel pillow. This is a step up from the table runner. If you are comfortable with your sewing machine and can sew a straight seam, please join us.

This is a two-session activity. 22 May and 5 June 1:00 PM – 3:00PM. The first meeting will cover the nine-patch front of the pillow; the second meeting will follow with the pillow pocket back and finishing of the pillow.

To make this activity easier on participants, the Zoom is set up so everyone only needs to register once. On May 24th, participants will receive an email with the code to enter the meeting room on June 5th.

This workshop is hosted by the WSU 4-H Sewing and Textile Advisors of Cowlitz County.

Please register for this sewing activity. It is open for all to participate!

When: May 22, 2021 and June 5, 2021 01:00 PM Pacific Time (US and Canada)
