Thinkering Studio Project Proposal


Title:
DIY Clothes
Member(s):
Hannah and Grace
Challenge:
To make everything look like it was purchased from a store.
Challenge Starters & Examples
Learning:
How to hand sew and be very neat with what we are doing.
We only have limited items to work with and we can't mess up.
Neither of us have ever done this before and we are not the best at hand sewing.
(Look at the Thinkering Studio Rubric for some ideas.)
Materials:
Old Clothes- FREE
Lace- $4.99
Scissors- FREE
Jewels- FREE

Fabric- FREE
Fabric Paint- FREE
Main Steps:
1. Get Supplies
2. Design
3. Create
4. Make a website
5. Either sell our clothes or put a picture on pintrest
6. Make YouTube videos
Pictures will document our progress
We will each make our own shirts but work together and give each other ideas and advice.
Time:
At least 1 quarter
Resources:
Pintrest
Stores
People
Clothes
My mom knows how to sew and is really creative
Mia and Amelia did a similar project last year but they glued and cut instead of sewing and transferring like us.

YouTube and Pintrest
How will you develop your PLN (personal learning network)?
Difficulties:
We have limited materials and we can't mess up. We need to make everything look neat and presentable.
Sharing:
We are going to make a website. post things on Pintrest, and make YouTube videos.
Evaluation:
If the clothes look good, and people watch our videos, and look at our pins on Pintrest then we are successful.
