We survived week 2!

Week 2 down!  And what a week it was! We started out the week on Monday with no air, which meant no lab time :(, thanks for being so flexible!  Luckily by Tuesday we were cool again and to the lab we went!  Tuesday night was also our Open House! A special thanks to all the parents who came out to see all the great things you'll be doing this semester.

We finished off the week with 3 completed seam samples.  1 easy and 2 samples that are considered more advanced!  Great job everyone! Your samples look great!  Below is an example of a flat-felled seam sample (ask you student to explain it and tell you why they are used)


Next week we'll spend the majority of our time in the lab. We will be working on our first project of the semester!  We'll be making drawstring backpacks to hold all of our future projects in.  Want a sneak peak?  Go here: http://www.themotherhuddle.com/tutorial-15-minute-fat-quarter-drawstring-bag/

In case you missed the homework for this weekend, below is our assignment.  Please make sure you have your ISN's updated and ready to go!


Thanks for being so willing to learn and trying your best!  I'm having a great time teaching you all to sew! I can't wait to see what great things you'll create!  Have a great weekend! Hope to see you at the football game and at Yogurtini @ 7th St & Bell afterwards! Go Trojans!
