Sophomore Fashion Design students in Mrs. Sheilah Petrosky’s class will began their holiday class project on Nov. 8. The final product of this class project will be a Christmas napkin present for their parents to enjoy.
“I wanted to assign the students this fun project because I thought that it was something new. They had also told me that last year they didn’t do anything like this, so I wanted them to try something new and see how it would work out,” Petrosky said.
Located in the Fashion classroom, the embroidery machine will be available for student use during the course of this project. This machine will assist them in creating patterns and designs on the fabric.
“I am glad that we didn’t use these four threaded sewing machines last year because it would have confused me on how to put all of the strings through it, and how to fix it if one string broke off,” sophomore Alex Decker said.
Students do not have a mandatory color scheme, but the colors must match the project’s “elegance” theme. For example, students can use reds, yellows, and greens. However, they must stay away from printed fabric with cartoons.
“I didn’t want to pick a Christmas color for my napkins because I want to be able to use them all year around. I don’t just want to put them away in a box, and then just take them out during Christmas,” sophomore Mirna Chan said.
