Materials needed:

*~1/4 yd sturdy cotton fabric like denim or canvas (I used 10oz painter’s canvas, which was very stiff, but also very reasonably priced, and made for beautiful results. So if your machine can handle it, I’d totally recommend dropping by your local art supplies store and buying some canvas-by-the-foot)
