Today I worked with my second community expert and I just realized that I don’t know my experts name I feel horrible. Like how don’t I? Well, she doesn’t know a lot of English and I don’t know a lot of Spanish. But next entry I will have her name! Anyhow, we pretty much finished another bag! I used some fabric that Elisa gave to me. My expert always tells me “be careful with your fingers, be careful” lol. She hates how close my fingers get. She helped me learn how to keep whatever I’m sewing steady and straight. I wish I would’ve worked with her from the beginning!
Today was the most exciting class yet!! I created the pattern for my prom dress. Raul and I made a few changes than the picture that inspired my dress. I hope this dress looks as perfect as I’m picturing it, if not better. I also picked up my fabric today. I will be wearing a dark blue color. Looks like a blue black. next class I will start this, it’s gonna be awesomeeeeeeee!!
Today I met with my new community expert. I have 2 consistent people now. The one from the beginning of the year just disappeared, wouldn’t respond to texts or calls. Luckily, I got the help from an elderly lady. She specializes in making different kinds of bags. She’s so nice! Today her and I created just a small bag so she can show me her way of doing things. The bag came out pretty great! My mother asked for it, and my sister but that was a no go! I loved it too much. But after this I can create them one of their own.
Today I added the lace to my robe. I used the lace for the cuffs and for the part that goes around my neck down to where it ends. It’s coming along great. As I’ve said before I love bringing these pieces to life. Next class I have to add some sort of string to tie the robe closed and I also have to do the hem. After this piece I will begin my prom dress!! I thought I was excited before but this is the most excited that I have been!
Hello my name is Damon Crosby and today was my first day starting at the MAG. Today we just went over the basics things. It was everyone’s first time meeting each other so we just introduced our selves. We went over the ground rules of the classroom. Also talked about what we wanted to learn and what we wanted to make. Over all today was a good class. And I am eager to learn how to sew.
