Although many of this year's Fashion Design students have made pajamas, robes, shirts and baby items, the majority of students have shown a great interest in creating decorations for the home. These items have included pillows, curtains, pet accessories, and quilts.
Several students are taking the Fashion Design course as well as the Woodshop course, giving them the unique opportunity to use both classes as a creative outlet for joint projects. Some students have built baby cradles in Woodshop and then created quilts and pillows in Fashion Design to complement their projects. One student is even making a 'doggie cushion' with attachments that can be removed or chewed.
One of the most exciting projects of the school year has been the creation of quilts for a baby and a toddler. Much of the quilts' piecing has been done using sewing machines, but all of the quilting will be done by hand. This is a huge undertaking, with the end result being a family heirloom that can be treasure for many years to come.
