Week 1

The goal:

To make a completely upcycled jacket from a blanket and curtains I thrifted in New Jersey.

What I learned:

1) How to sew again?? It had been months since I used a sewing machine and patterns. Huge learning curve

2) Front pockets

3) Sewing in buttons and making button holes

4) The importance of figuring out how to finish all the edges ahead of time

5) Why you should line jackets

6) TikTok transitions

What I would tweak in the future:

I would suggest for future me to plan for the learning in each project, and try to look more things up on YouTube to learn beforehand.
