My ideal school
Stipid spelling city game! (look, it obviously didn't help)
Over the break.....
First there was Easter = chocolate and hot cross buns YuMm!
Then one day I was sitting on my bed, quite bored.....and i thought.....what can i do??
I was looking through my art diary and i found a picture of I trench coat I had drawn. i looked outside, it was rainy and windy. I thought.... i would really like to wear a coat out in that weather.
So the next thing i did was went to my mum and asked, 'can i make this coat?' Mum agreed and found old patterns she had kept from when she was younger. I found a pattern that was similar to what i had drawn. so the next thing we did was made a sample one out of old sheet and then changed the shape and length to be like what i had drawn.
The next day we went to get fabric. I thought of having it dark blue. We were there looking at fabric and i though, Why did i want it blue? Then i discovered that it was just because i had seen a blue onein the shops. I found this really nice 'gabadean' which was a grey-perple colour. I also wanted to have a lining- mum brought out a dark grape kind of colour which was soft to go on my skin and went really well with the grey.
To complete the coat it took about a week. We did some mistakes, but Mum and I learn from them all. I could have just gone a bought one, but making one myself atcheived a lot more. I learnt heaps of sowing skills and how to use patterns, Mum and I had fun together, it stopped me sitting in front of the computer and I saved heaps of money by making it myself.
