Tinkering

Week 1

Day 1

Today in design I was chosen to be in tinkering. I am in a group with my best friend, We had to take a picture of all of our things in t
he Makey Makey kit, in the Makey Makey there are 6 white wires, a mother board, USB cord and 7 crocodile clips. A mother board it like the brain on everything, The USB cord connects things from the laptop to the mother board, The crocodile clips connects things to the mother board because there is a wire in it. (Tiana helped doing this blog).

Day 2

Today my partner and I decided to start tinkering thing. We tinkered a laptop, Here is a video that I made. This took us 2-3 lessons to get open and finish.

Sewing

Day 1
Today I was chosen to do sewing and I have wanted to do sewing for ages and I am really exited that I’m doing this. For sewing we got to start a day earlier and I got to choose what shape I wanted to do for my out cut and I chose cats and dogs and we got to start my straight stitches practice. There are 6 steps for sewing.
  1. Fabric on starting line
  2. Foot down
  3. Left hand hold cotton
  4. Right hand turn, 3 stitches
  5. Swap hands
  6. Sew slowly
Here is a picture of my practice straight stitches and my templates. For next session of sewing I am going to try to start my real out cut.

Day 2

Today in sewing I got to start cutting my dogs and cats out and it was hard because sometimes the scissors didn’t cut through the fabric properly but I got it done and it looked like this.

For sewing this week we made a bag to hold our math blocks by all we got to do today was choose our fabric and zig zag stitch the whole thing, A zig zag stitch is to keep the fabric from fraying.

For sewing I got to stitch my fabric toghether and I think that tomorrow I will be able to start the braiding for the string and start weaving the string. I’ve got quite a lot done today.
