Sewing for donation Create and Improve/ Reflection

Create and Improve:


I created this baby blanket that has white sides on each side.


This is my final product.


During the project create I first made the two short sides but after I was done I figured out that one of the sides wasn’t as it should be so I decided to redo the side and although it took me longer than I was planning I still enjoyed the time of learning.

This is a closer look at the edges I sewed.


I was improving my plan by looking at videos online and searching for different sewing patterns.

These are some example ideas that I found online.


I think I did well on learning how to sew on a machine and making my product when I was still learning.

I learned how to sew and work with a machine also I learned how to undo the sewings that I had finished.

A challenge that I  faced was to learn how to use a sewing machine and also make my product with it. Another challenge that faced was that I needed to finish my product just in one day and that I needed to change and redo some of the mistakes that I made which took a long time.

I think that One-day is important because during One-day we can focus on one thing that we are doing or making for a whole day which means that there is more time to make the product also we can be choosing one of our favorite things that we would like to do all day so it makes the day fun and exciting.

Sewing for donation Define and Inquire

My goal in this one-day project is to make a useful product that can be donated for kids in need.

My hopes for this one-day sewing donation is to learn and improve my hand sewing skills.

Define and Inquire


Since it is winter now and we have big winter jackets but at the same time, there are also many children suffering in the cold. So I think that if we all help do something for them they can be warm and comfortable too. We decided that making things that can be useful for them will be the best to make and give form us.

But time might be a big limit for us since it is only a one-day project some of our product might need more time than others do so project unfinished is a limited problem for us now. Another problem is that when you need to make something when you’re still in the prosses of learning might be another difficult thing to do as learners in sewing. Other than limited for time, another thing is that the materials that we have could be a limitation for us.


This project is all going to give to a charity and donating to children that need this to keep warm throughout the winter.


In order to do these for donations, I need to learn to sew and learn about the materials what we need to make winter wears for the children. Also, we can get inspirations from the internet, look up for pictures and videos to learn how to make different winter wears.
