It had been a while since I took out my sewing machine, but today I had a prize to craft. I'm training to become a teacher, and in about a week, I'll be giving a documentary related workshop with two of my fellow students to a bunch of teenagers (16-18). The documentary their teacher picked out it a rather difficult one about the relationship between the stock markets and technology, and to incentivise the youngsters, we've integrated an element of competition. The winner gets to take home this gym bag, which my co-teacher will decorate with a custom stock-related iron-on print.

The bag was made from a second hand shirt that proved too large for my husband. Including the buttons was a necessity, because that was the only way to get enough fabric, but I like the effect. Let's hope our winning teen will like the bag too. Probably going to get more use than the initial idea of a printed T-shirt. I veto'ed that idea: with all the different shapes and sizes in the classroom, that's crafting for the dumpster.

Oh very cool!  Love the effect of the buttons.

Never would have thought to do anything like that. I really like the material too. Perfect for travel laundry bag.

Making is my passion. Wine is my weakness. Dance is my medicine.
