Daniele made a knit black dress as her first project. It wasn't easy fabric to cut or sew with it's curling at the edges. I told her through the whole process not to have high exceptions for her first project but I think her little black dress came out great. She brought in some trim with her. She hasn't decided what she's going to use or how she wants to use them so we just wrapped it around like a belt for the pictures.
Sam who does photography (go check out her work because she is amazing) wants to sew clothing for her photo shoots. She's been doing some sewing at home but just needs a little help on technique. She came to class Friday afternoon and we had these pants made in an hour and half. She used an old sheet to make them. She's been doing thrifting to find her fabrics to use. She has some great ideas for bright color fabrics she's found in all kinds of recycled things.
Isabel (one of the month of tops winners) made this little dress as her first project. She's picked it up and put it down to work on other projects but this week we got to finish it. The pink zipper doesn't look that great in the picture from the inside but when her little neice wears it you will never see the zipper from the outside. She emblished it with a pin flower that can be taken off and put in other areas of the dress, hat or anywhere the little one wants to put it.
Yesterday in class we worked on sewing together big square pouches to carry his artwork in. We're basically making big envelopes with batting to protect his is drawings while traveling. Christopher's learning the art of sewing but he has mastered illistration and drawings. He does amazing work. Some of his artwork is for sale. I'll have to get some information about that to share with you.
