Sew Up A Simple & Fun Shirt

About this Experience

We’ll be making use of discarded jeans by creating yardage that can be used for many projects. This is a great way to get familiar with a sewing machine or serger. While we won’t be constructing a final project in class, your upcycled “fabric” can be used to make a simple pillow or bag. Not your typical 70’s refashion, the results are boutique-worthy. Sustainability at its most fashionable!
