  • Sewing machine
  • Zipper Foot
  • 1½ yards of 44″+ wide printed cotton fabric for the exterior body and pockets
    NOTE: This yardage allows a bit extra to fussy cut the stripes.
  • 1¼ yard of 44″+ wide coordinating solid fabric for the lining
  • ¼ yard of 44″+ medium-weight coordinating solid fabric for the top exterior section
  • ¼ yard of 44″+ medium-weight coordinating solid fabric for the appliqué, piping and binding
  • ¼ yard of fusible fleece
  • ½ yard of 20″+ wide medium weight fusible interfacing
  • Scrap or ¼ yard of paper-backed fusible web for appliqué
  • 1 yard of ¼” (or similar) cotton piping cord
    NOTE: Piping cord sometimes comes in what seems like odd sizes; you can certainly find ¼” cord, but 3/16″ cotton cord is a bit easier to source and would work fine.
  • Scrap or ⅛ yard of ⅝” – 1″ sew-in Velcro®
  • One 9″ x 14″ (approximate) sheet of plastic canvas (or similar) for the base support
  • ONE 12″ wide child’s hanger with an adjustable hook
    NOTE: Our stacker is sized for a snug fit over the hanger. The style we used was purchased at a local variety store. We spied the same style online at Target and Bed Bath & Beyond. The key is to buy the child-size style (most are 11-12″ in width) with a hook that can be rotated, allowing you to best position the stacker on a crib or changing table. We don’t recommend the molded plastic hangers.
  • All purpose thread to match fabric
    NOTE: We used all purpose thread for our appliqué work; you could also use a rayon embroidery thread for this process if you prefer a brighter finish. 
  • See-through ruler
  • Fabric pen or pencil
  • Iron and ironing board
  • Scissors or rotary cutter and mat
  • Tape measure
  • Seam gauge
  • Seam ripper
  • Straight pins
  • Hand sewing needle
