So my daughter Kayla has been taking a grad school class…and playing with fabric. Lucky for us, it’s actually a great combination.
Kayla is a Family Consumer Sciences teacher Marion, Iowa. She’s a great teacher and is always looking for ways to integrate technology into the classroom. Kayla is a bit techie herself and knows that students especially love technology…so it’s a win-win. She uses it and the kids love it.
On her quest for college she took a grad class that taught her how to “make movies”. She learned about voice overs, adding music and all the other things you need to know to make a video. At the same time, at her house, Kayla was playing with shirts making these mitered corner blocks.
Aren’t they cute blocks? She made them all from cotton shirts.
As she was taking the class and making the blocks at the same time she decided to practice what she was learning in class and make a video of how to make the blocks. Feel free to give it a viewing.
I think she did an excellent job on both the blocks and the video.
I happened to have moved a BIG pile of cotton shirts…once I’m settled I just might have to give these a try.
