This chapter is as a crash course in sewing and working with fabric. If you have never learned how to sew or need a refresher, consider this chapter a guidebook for the project in the remainder of the book. You will need to acquire a basic sewing set, which is described in the next section, and some fabric. These materials can be found at most craft stores or at a fabric store, if there is one local to your area. You could also cut up an old article of clothing as scrap fabric to practice with.
