1. 1 Intro : I'm loose peer fashion designer and artist, And in this class we're gonna learn how to build a loon, and we've discarded textiles into pretty awesome repurpose denim jacket piece. You can either do a back panel like this, or you could do the back yoke. One option, another example. And this is just like a super rad vintage Bill Blass jacket. You might want to take my first crossed, um, learning how to leave just long time to make those basic square alone way this school centerpiece square out of this, also out of old garments that have Holder had been cut up and couldn't like, be repurposed as apparel and if you want with Bill, would give Rego Overhauser weed and the bloom in this class, but it will be a little quicker. So if you want to take the first class first, it's up to you. 2. 2 What You Need: first things first, you're gonna want to gather all of the materials and things that you need, so we're gonna be building loom first. So you might want to get, um, these wooden pieces that are, like, three force of an inch by, like, 1.5 or something, just something like this. It doesn't have to be exact. You're also gonna need four of these ice screws and depending on the size of your jacket, peace. Since this everyone's is going to be different, it's gonna be ah, little different, depending on how many screws you need. But you will need around 25 to 40 wood screws, most likely. And then we're also gonna need some type of sturdy, either wooden dowel that's pretty sturdy, or these metal ones are also inexpensive, and you can get him at any harbor storm and then moving on to the fabrics. Um, I work as I said in the garment industry, so samples are made. The hundreds of samples are made like each month, um, to show the buyers to sell to stores across America and worldwide, and many of the samples get discarded just because it's cheaper. And that's really sad to me. So I try really hard, uh, to reuse as much as I can. I mean, only one person, so I don't even put a dent in this. But a lot of things like this or a sample that I was thrown away. So I'm going to try to cut this up in the strips and use this into my project. Um, there's more. Well, this one is cutting household in it. 3. 3 Choose Your Fabrics: Another thing I wanted to mention about picking your fabrics is if you pick fabrics. Most woven fabrics will have some type of this fraying edge on its, um But so if you don't want this, if you don't want it to have this aesthetic to be sort of this hairier look, make sure you caught the fabrics first. Eso like this Navy, um, lightweight shirting fabric that I use. I think this is actually silk. Um, the ends did not frame, but on some of these others, they afraid quite a bit. Um, like, in this specific one, I stopped using this. You only see it at the top and bottom of the pattern because it is so Harry, looking so first, before you use your fabrics just sort of cut the edge or cut into them and see how the ends react If they're gonna pray like this, if you use fabrics such as jersey like T shirt fabric, they won't frame, Um, for the most part. So if you don't want any of any of these frayed edges at all, you might wanna consider the fabrics you use prior and I also though, try to pick fabrics that are lightweight because this whole piece will the applicator on this. I chose very lightweight fabrics, and it works. Perfects, uh, for the general. Drag it. So just keep that in mind when you're picking your fabrics. 4. 4 Jacket Panel Dimensions : So just measure all the basic measurements of the back panel piece that you're gonna dio. Um, I like to leave this stitch line, so I like to use measure inside so below the yolk, because we're gonna leave this stitching showing so measure from right here to above the band's You also don't want toe. I mean, it's up to you, but I don't want to cover the band. So these measurements that you're gonna make are the exact measurements of the actual weaving that you want and then just make a little diagram. Doesn't have to be anything fancy and write down all the measurements that you get. Um, do this middle measurement so we can just check it on the loom that I am going to cover these stitching side pieces cause I'm gonna do the entirety of this back panel. Some minds gonna be 11 by 14 in an eighth is on this side and seven and three aids. Um, on my bottom right here. The thing is, yours is gonna be difference will make sure you use your own measurements. And once we have those, we can start getting to building the loom. Um, if you took my first class, you can reuse pieces of that loom. That's what's actually great about this is once you build more rooms pretty much always hang on the size of what you're making reuse elements from it into a new project. So for me, the this creation of it in the last cross, this is exactly 11 inches, So I can just use one of these pieces from the old room as my top. These will be the longer pieces on the side that will go somewhat like this. And on the bottom only needs to be seven and 38 So I'm gonna have Teoh restructure, restructure. This fits those dimensions. 5. 5 Building the Loom: So we got our looms started, and we've got the wood all cut two inches about longer than the measurements on the width and the length of the back panel piece that we're gonna be weaving and we've got the top measurement. Also, Dr Marie puts a line in the middle of the room, Um, on the top ease and the top of the middle of a line that we have the screws on here to the bottom. Where we have the middle of the bottom bar is going to be the height in the middle of our, um, back jacket panel. So between whatever your top with measurement waas for your panel, you're gonna want us, um, space out your screws somewhere near an angel part. Most likely, uh, between the distance between your back panel and at the edges of the marking of where back panels gonna be is we're gonna put your two islets cruise on the top and on the edges of where the bottom of your back panel measurements are going to be as we're gonna put two out screws on the bottom. And between those measurements, you're gonna space out about one inch and then just mark with a pencil pre drill your holes and then through on your screws. After you have all your screws put in like this, you're gonna make another pre drilled hole about 1/4 inch away from your island screws on both sides, and we're gonna drill those in here definitely pre drilled A is because since they're so close together, there's a good chance of the wood splitting. But if you present him will be fine. And the reason why these were going to be closer is when we put our support teams in that are going through here. The support beam and this where we're gonna we've are, um, warp yarn through is gonna act as one piece. We'll show you that later. And then we're gonna do the same thing on the bottom on Lee. The bottom since it's nearer is going to be a little more tricky. And it's definitely a little more tricky than the last class, and it was just a square. So for this, the measurements going to be different because we kind of need tohave the same number of these pegs on the top and bottom so that we get somewhat even Rose. So how we do that is you just distribute the distance, Um, between here and here by a larger number. So 12 there's from my measurements. There's 12 of the screws on my top handle on the bottom. There's gonna be 12 also. But since they're not going to space one inch of parts, and so it's a much smaller space need toe figure out your measurement, like on a roller calculator, so mine ends up being about 5/8. They don't kill yourself if one of the Rose like if you almost have it. But then the last one's not exactly right. Don't help yourself, Okay? So mine. It's pretty much all almost about 5/8 and then the very last one is like a little off, so that's totally fine. Once you get weaving, you can kind of pull in separate it, um, things you can kind of stretch and pull things toe How you need. Um, that's what's great about fiber arts. So you don't need really need to worry too much that its exact exact get it pretty close doesn't have to be exact. So once you have diesel marked out, you can definitely screw it all together and then make sure also to pre drill, especially if yours are gonna be pretty close. Like mine. Um, preacher, All your holes and the same thing that's gonna happen. So the edge measurement that's going to be in the middle of this piece so that makes sure it lines up with this top in the bottom half my rob so that this rod can go through and it's creating a straight line. But once you get that in, we're gonna also. And once you get your measurement figured out here after you get all those holes drilled, also drill another hole fourth of an inch away from the island. Screw on each end as well. So be another island. Screw here at the bottom measurement from where mine jacket edge is gonna be on the bottom and then in from that will be 1/4 of an inch. But all the other spacing from here to here to here is gonna be my 5/8 inch spacing for my jacket cement years. They're going to be different, so keep that in mind. 6. 6 Connecting Fabric Strips: you know that you have your fabric strips all cut, and you have oldest to choose from. Um, you can start putting a bunch together to make a bowl, and we're gonna use it toe work, the loom. Just so you know that whatever fabric strips that you're gonna use toe work the loom, it's not going to show very much. So the warp of a Loomis. What? Hold it together. But it doesn't really show. So if we look at this one, if I kind of pull us apart this color here that doesn't show in this is what I used to work the limit. So I purposely use something I wasn't that fond of. So for this purpose, it is gonna show on the ends. So you something that you don't hate but that you're not going to be bummed about if it's like not showing no covered. Okay, So don't you have your pieces, Charles, in just full take two other strips that you have cut. Take one of the ends of the strips, pulled it over, um, half inch to an inch and then make a slit in it. Make sure it's not all the way to the edge, but just like a smaller slid about 1/4 of an inch, Er said, It will be double that wide. Once you pull it up, it's in half on. Do the same thing to the next strip. Make a tiny split, the smaller the slip, that more it's gonna hold because you know there's an ability for it to tear. Um, once a 12 it will be a problem, but just make like a small slit. Then you're gonna take the two wins that you made slits and either totally different fabric strips and you're just gonna take, then match up where you put your slits, your couples and then the tail end of this top one that you put on you're gonna bring it through the whole and then just call and then just sort of pull. This is really light weight. Actually want Popes you are, but and then that's just how you combine them. Somehow, these two strips or one piece and then just take the tail end of this strip and do the same thing and keep adding strips until you have not a huge ball. That I'd say probably about like like this size ball, and then we'll move on toe warping the loom. So I decided not to use this prettier fabric to work, balloon and just use the salvage edge of some great fabric that I already had. So the graves are also in this print, so I think it will be fine. It's not, really show that much of your time, and it will be a lot faster because you don't have to actually attach the ends. So it was have all this fabric yardage that's been sitting around, so I'm just gonna make a snip in the end of this average of the fabric. So you have left over scraps. You just save the South a judge and cutting As you go, you're selling things. Or if you have a muse fabric like this, you just do it on on. Then you know the grain of the fabric, anyway, is where you cut the to work your loan. You take either yourself a judge or the fabric strips that you tied together and get a prey , decent sized ball of them, and then take one ends of your ball and you're just gonna make a a loop. Make the little big enough cause we're gonna actually have to leave through the slope later . You want to be huge, but big enough to give yourself some room to work with so literally. Just me a little. Not in this one. The Littles, of course, because of the frayed edges since I used the work, I mean, since I used the salvage. Okay, so just pulled those basic Not like that. And this one might be a little difficult to maneuver through, but just trying to make a big enough opening that you leave through this. 7. 7 Warping the Loom: So we got the loom pretty much done in terms of the carpet drear Brooke and drilling tools and everything in it. So now it's time to work, Bloom, and I'm going to remove these Islands group. But I just wanted to have it in there, so you guys could see, like, how close it actually a space super close on top and bottom. We'll take those out just to work alone because it's a little bit of its height squeeze. All right, So the war, babe, we're gonna take the strips that you either pre cuts or pre rips. Um, either the salvage of, you know, fabric from when your fiber projects for that you could. And then we're gonna take one ends and just make a knot in one end. And you have all of your, um, fabric strips to gather either sonar ship together. They could not in one. And so there's a look like this. And then just start the loop on the first corner first time and then just come down like this and back when we're just gonna do this through the whole thing. Line a little tight squeeze because the bottom of my dragon um, came down Teoh Why and narrow edge. So that's all you dio and hopefully your fabric was in its various mind. You will have us many of these loose pieces that they're getting caught on. It's not gonna show it all, since this is the underside of the one that holds everything together. Those Harry pieces won't really show. But Justus far doing this. It's a little annoying, that's all working Lorna's just unless and there is another way rather than putting with all these pieces down here, but it's a little bit MacGyver rational. It involves double looping a couple of these down here if you don't keep on the same number as like if you didn't put 12 in the bottom like you have 12 top, um, and it gets a little messy. So this infection of the right way to do it soldiers to this and then looks like we might need to add, which is perfectly fine. I have one more here that needs it. So I added a piece. So this is now long enough. And then once you get to your last peg, just kind of see about how much need from take another look like there's just make sure the loop is big enough to weave through on the top and the bottom. Mm. Put it right on there. And so you want this to be not super tight, but pretty like a decent tightness, So you can see this aren't like super tight, but they're not. They're actually, like, extended or not sagging. So now here loom is fully worked, and we can start making our fabric strips that we actually want to show, and then we can start leaving. So now cut up the rest of your fabric into strips and start attaching them. And you can attach them like mixing the prince because how you attached them is gonna determined. Like the pattern that you getting believe you can totally. If you want to, just do it at random, or you can keep a pattern like you can attach one strands of this fabric one strain of this fabric and one china this artwork, and then keep it in that row if you want. But I think it looks better if you kind of try to mix them up. That's just my personal taste. But you can do it however you want 8. 8 Start Weaving: and now it's time to start weaving. So we've got thes millibars put in over the stabilizing bars on either side hand. This first strip right here that we have of our work is gonna be active. One with this bar always and the same on this other side. This last row of fabric will be one with this part here. So we have our fabric that we connected and cut into about one inch strips. Some of my shops are like a little whiter have been one inch and summer skinnier. It's doesn't matter exactly how wide they are once they start to get woven in. They're gonna, um, get crunched a little, anyway, is in kind all form uh, Teoh a normalized looking pattern, you know, like this. Okay, so I decided you can connect your strips pattern by pattern at random if you want, or how I decided to do it is on one side. I'm gonna keep all this pattern. And on the other side, I'm gonna alternate this pattern in this pattern. So I'm gonna connect this stripped end to this strip end and then connected again once we get going. But on this side I'm gonna just use this so that this print weaves in over these two and you'll see that as we start to go. So to start, this is the upper left hand corner of your loom. If you're looking down at your loom, this is where we have this loop that we put in right there. Okay, so how to start? We have. So we've through this loop and they also have to remember to use this bar as one with this , so you have to weave the fabric through the loop. If you don't, the whole loom will come unraveled when you take it off. I mean, your whole weeding will come unraveled when you take it off the loom. So I'm gonna come up under, let me click. He was gonna pull the Talyn's, um, under the bar and up through the slope. Just make sure it goes through the loop, can just bunch up the fabrics. I could hold it. And then wherever it is that you want your pattern to start, that's where you can just stop. Um, so this is going to go over the rest of this on the stop here, but make sure you have, Ah, handful of fabric on this side and a handful of on the site. So once it's under and through that loop, this is how we start. And then this one, I'm just going to put since this one came under the bar, this one's going to go over the bar and then I'm gonna put it back through the loop this way, and I make sort of a tiny loop. So instead of passing the whole handful of fabric through, I'm gonna use the tailings and then pull it through. It's probably easier to show you anyway, So this one is just coming over the bar and then down through the loop since the other one went under the bar and up to Luke. So this is the very start alone, and it looks like that. And then we just take this piece, put this at the top because it just came through, and then this one came over. This came up through this, so it's gonna go down through this one and up to the top, and then this month is coming. You look kind of where it's coming to know. So this one came under this one. So we're gonna go over this one and then up to the top. This one, you can see it's coming from right here. It's coming from under. It's going to go over this time, and then this one is also coming from under. So what's gonna go over this one and then the same thing coming up, So it's gonna go over this one and up through this one. 9. 9 Weaving: and one thing that's also going to give this one kind of a different looker texture of the other ones I showed is this warp yarn that I use. Since I used the salvage of, ah, slightly heavier weight fabric, it's going to give a different look. Um, since these air letter weight fabrics, which you definitely want to use lighter weight fabrics. But this the warping is a lot bigger, so that's going to give slightly different feel and look to the whole textile. When it's done, make him come out. Look super cool may look slightly clunky. Well, you will find out and then just keep doing that same pattern and you can just keep going faster and faster. Um, as you, you know, pick it up and get going. So since I am using the salvage and mine has straight beds that are unraveling, I had to click some of that blood, was coming from you, and then actually get to the other end. We're gonna just do the same thing and then go back in slight reverse. So when we get to get other ad rate way, just have to use this last row when this was one again. There is no loop on this side on mine. I'm not sure how yours worked. Turned out if there was another loop on this side, you'd have to leave through that also. But my loop is at my bottom right corner. So we have to worry about that till the very last a row of this weaving. Okay, so now we're at the last row. Put this one up over the bar. This was gonna come down under the bar, and then I'm gonna put this at the top, and these air just looped like around each other. So now this one is just gonna come under the bar. They're both, as you can see around of our and do a kind of tight, because since the rose have a little bit of spacing, sometimes the ends can look well, This one I did a pretty good job on, but sometimes the spacing could look different on the edges if you leave too much of a gap there. Um so try to kind of put tight when you're on the ends with the bar. So I'm just trying to pull this right here, okay? And then you just do the salmon back technique, and it's really helpful if you just put whatever one you just used up the top so you know which one's going over. So this one is coming up through this one, so it's gonna go under the next one and then also just start as you're starting to go, start pushing the weaving up towards the bags always screws so that you don't also have a um, when you pull it off, you don't have, like a weird gap there, and that's how you start weaving so you can start adding different patterns. Also, if you start weaving it together and you dio do at least three rows, you can kind of start to see how they're mixing together. If you don't like how the fabrics mixing together, you can change up your original pattern idea. Start adding in a different color or, you know, changing the order that you wanted. If you were just, you know, start doing them like you know, this point this month, this print, and now you're seeing that you don't really like that or you want it to have more variants . You can always just switch that right up really easily start doing a different pattern. Okay, Okay. And once you start to get, um, let's say at least six rows move in. Um, you can go ahead and posted to the cost project wall and show everyone how cool your patterns coming out. And if you want, explain what fabrics that you used, uh, to start your reading way. 10. 10 Weaving Pattern : Connecting Strips: does done, and you see how the patterns kind of playing out. So I mostly I just used this all for this side of the up. The weaving was all just this was getting moving in with the right hand stripping, which I was mixing this print in this prince, Um, this print I only had up at the top, this small section and all the rest of it is this nice floral skirt that had holes in it that I had cut up into strips. So now I'm gonna put another strip in and connect it of this fabric printed so it will be like kind of striped sections that will be like this mixed with this stripe. And then we got this mixed with this for this section right here, and I'm gonna have another stripe. So it's gonna look swirling this jacket that I did a while ago that has, like, the different stripes. I used way more different patterns and fabric in this one. Um, but I think this one's gonna look right also with these fiber center shoes. So just as a little reminder on how to add strips, since this is to the point where I need to add you just make a split in the fire exit just built spins. One ends back. Just make a little slip. But make sure it was not for him at the ad show doesn't here. And then you use this split that's in this one. Just put on like this and the one that's on the bottom. Just take the tail end of that on. Push it through the slits. Paul, you're ready to start reading again. Oh, under. And as you're going like, I'm just kind of telling you steps to make it clear, um, and giving you general generalized measurements for, like, the strips that he wanted to write and so on and so forth. But the more you feel more comfortable with it and understand, like how to do everything, you can start using different type of fabric and also playing with the with of the fabric because it could look really cool. Also, if one other strips was like super thin, and one is, you know, obviously like white and thick. Um, there's also in knitting. There is a garden that people use a lot called thick and thin, and that's exactly what it is, uh, like sweaters and everything that's in the dam. That's first sale, actually, in major department stores. A lot of the actual sweater fabric that they use is by using like a thick yarn and a thin yard. And it shows really cool when it's like contrast colors. What could be one idea that you play with? You could also play with maybe, like woven and knit fabrics Definitely color and France, like If you used a solid in with the prince, you know all kinds of different ideas. If there's like a textured fabric again, you probably if you are like Afghanis to a denim jacket like we are you want to use, things are lightweight are your jackets will be really heavy. But you know it's up to you to play with that sound just like that. And then that again you could see how I went around the loop there and then also just keep trying. Teoh. There's something else you can play with, but keep trying to make sure for this to make sure that it's kind of tight and that the rose staying at a pretty level angle as you're going. If you don't keep it tight. It's kind of it'll look sort of messy. And we'll also the warp yarns underneath. They're gonna show too much nice and types of just CV is wept pieces. So these are actually called the West is the right that goes right and left. So that's going this way. Like, just think of it as you read, right to left that these air, the weft yarns and then we already know that we worked it with these yards. 11. 11 Finish Weaving: So we're finishing the weaving. We're getting to like the bottom part. Um, weaving in here since in a smaller space is a little tougher because it's you just have a lot less room. Um, also just remind you when you get so that's the last. This is the loop right here. You can't see it that much because I kind of already went over the not But this is the loop , like the loop that we started with at the top. This piece right here is the loop. This is one row with this, and this is the loop that you need to leave through if you don't leave through this last loop. Um, and the top loop, uh, you're reading will fall apart incompetently unraveled when you take it off a little. So just make sure when you go under and over that you're going through this, we're almost there. So I'm trying to get it done because it will be really cool to see when we take it off. And I could already see how it's like looking with the denim jacket. Um, that I'm gonna put it on. So since this is this dark, blacker jacket with this thing. It's a real rad. So get excited and want to see it on the actual dragon. But it's tight down here. I'm gonna have to add a piece. We're almost there. 12. 12 Removing Weaving from Loom: when you get the last row, you're gonna come up through this last loop like we talked about earlier. So make sure you leave through the loop, the one hand strand will come up through a the other one is gonna go down through the loop and then we are going to come back through here just once, cause I'm gonna finish off the leaving right here. So just pretend like you're starting a new row and like, you're gonna go back through the loop again and just pretend like you're starting a brand new Rome, but only do that one time. It's really tight here, and it's hard to see, and this one is gonna come up through the loop to finish it off, and then I'm just gonna put both towards the bottom side so I can tie it off down there, and then that is where I'm going. They're going to stay on the bottom and we'll just tie it. And then when you leave it on to the jacket, it's not gonna show cause it's gonna be in the bottom. So I'm gonna talk this one down there, too, that I'm just gonna flip it over to the underside. I'm just gonna tie. Just gonna bake ago. Just a basic non time together just so they stay. Don't clip the ends in a 2nd 13 Just turn the limb back to the right side. And now you can take out, um, the supporting themes it. So just go ahead. As long as you wove through this bottom loop, everything will be fine. So go ahead and pull. How? Beans. And then now it's time you can take it off. Balloon was the exciting part. All right, so there's it's cool that there is space right here that it's not moving all the way down, did you can kind of space it out with your fingers as long as you wove it up nice and time . So this is also get, like, help to get everything off bloom since it is really tight. Um, it'll be sort of hard. Do you wanna make sure you give yourself a little room? Gold is totally off. Mine's actually catching on a little extra strength. Two more on this side string on there. Then you don't have to fully take these islands screws. Um, out if it's if you have room, but I thought I would just help a little, or you can just turn him sideways. All right. This is your finished piece. You just got Stretch it out to make sure I thought it fit. You just just use your hands and kind of pulled, um, believing down so that it fits. And so that you don't have these. Like Woop sticking out top and bottom. Try to soar quickly. Do you see on You can, um, do it a little better than that. And go ahead. Go. You can even start, like, sort of in the middle, or even higher up hands. Go ahead and pull down, and then you'll get in. Just slip off this back piece that you have here. You mean the Not in. Just make sure that's tight enough, and then you can pass. The out's going Look on your jacket. Let's have to get be shutting fabric off there. Nothing is going critical 13. 13 Pinning Weaving to Jacket: So are weaving is all evenly stretched out. And I'm just taking our T pens and hitting it to the back of the jacket covering the back panel. Um, And as you do that, you can kind of make sure cause we're gonna sew it on next. Just make sure that everything is line of exactly how you want it. Because it wants to stitch down. You're not gonna be able to move anything and just keep your pinning direction in minds. Like if you're gonna be sewing up starting at this edge, keep the pins going. This place you can pull them out as your sewing this way. So all my pens were facing the same way around the outside so that I can easily pull them off, as were selling. Oh, and then also, I pens up on the backside, this extra little strip that we tied on the bottom where we ended the weaving. I don't want to be a huge not so I'm not gonna double knot it. So instead, I'm just gonna take these tail ends and put them in the stitch line where we're gonna sell , and then I'm gonna finish pinning this down and then we're going to start going and all my sewing machine. I have the attachment. Uh um, this even feed walking, But so you're gonna want to put this on for sure, because it's gonna help, because this is so bulky. Since your denim is bulky and you have your weaving, it's pretty bulky. So I got that on there, and I also have black thread because that matches my denim jacket and the weaving, so pick a color that you think is gonna help a match. 14. 14 Sewing Weaving to Jacket: you are ready to go, Won't you put it on here As you start going, I just keep a pin in my hands. So as I'm going, I just kind of pulled this down like this just to make sure that the foot doesn't get stuck on any of the loops and to keep if you have any loops that aren't even, um, while you were weaving, you can kind of pushed them under and keep him down with the pen. As you're selling, if you have a the thicker your jacket in the thicker your meeting is, the more difficult this will be. Um, this one is actually not hard at all. They ended up being pretty pretty good. Uh, thickness leading man. As you get to your pens, just pull them out. That's why I was mentioning to think about your sewing direction as your pending to make sure they the heads, are facing this way so you can usually pull him out while you're sewing and then make a loop here. That's a little crazy. So I'm gonna try to tuck that under. Well, so in this one, - nobody into the corner. Just leave the needle in down, lift up the foot and then pivot. And again, just make sure, uh that the foot doesn't get stuck on your loops. Then put the foot back down. Remember to put the ball back down to your machines. Not gonna work. It's gonna get stuck. And I'm gonna just kind of hold us up. Because while we were sewing things shifted a little. Who's want to make sure it is touching some coming to the ends. I rounded the last corner, and this is the bottom that's gonna finish it up. - I'm just gonna pull us down to make sure that it who's all the way the corner thing and then you definitely just want to reverse. Then we're basically done. This is the final jacket, the back of it. That's pretty cool. Ready to go wear it and rocket outside. Have everyone ask you where you got this. Um, go ahead and love to see how you guys did. So go ahead and post the project wall. Uh, you're finished work. You compose it into your own bottle. So wait to see what everyone did 15. Final Thought : I hope you enjoy taking the class and making your awesome did. I'm dropping and so really great weight to recycle scrap fabrics and not have been going toe. Look for further classes on similar topics. I might be doing a few more classes, very different crazy and other recycling fabric techniques things again. And I really can't wait to see all US projects and how all the different fabrics got moving together.
