Paper Circuits

Project 1 For the first project, getting the wire to fold at corners was fun to learn. Seeing the bulb light up certainly made my day in the class. Project 2 For project 2, I picked the quote about having a bright inner light. I liked this quote because everyone has an inner light they […]

Priyanka Chopra Assignment 2

Build process First I got the outermost layer of the flower, which is the purple petal design. I changed the original image to have 4 long edges coming out of it to give it a sharper look. Then I took the inner yellow layer but used the inside petals of the layer instead of the […]

Copper Tape Project

For my copper tape project I created a mothers day card. I wanted to include a silhouette of our family so I spent most of my time creating and editing my pictures on Inkscape. Using the silhouette as my inspiration as to wear to place my LED, I could tell that it was difficult to […]

Final Project

For the final project I chose to make a skirt for my mom. I chose to use linen for skirt so it was breathable in the summer, and I chose linen over cotton just so I wouldn’t have to add a slip layer if because most of the cotton fabrics were see through.  I found […]

I happened to also be in a fashion class this semester, so I was excited to get the opportunity to learn some new things that could add to my clothing construction repertoire. I’ve also never been around embroidery machines before, so that was […]

After reflecting on my previous sewing project, I wanted to start this one with measurement and pre-made patterns so there would be less guess work and alterations but I didn’t find any patterns that I could buy that I liked. So […]
