This project was done on mostly donations. I got a lot of the fabric and notions as donations from parents and the community. Teachers and parents and students lent their sewing machines. Of all the sewing machines we had one worked the best an old 1960's Singer. Amazing, right? All the others kept breaking down and were too sensitive for use.
Now with that said, I plan to do this next year but get another teacher to help me and we may break it up to more crafting and will include sewing, knitting, embroidery, jewelry making it but the premise will be thrift it then make it.
