the last blog...

so i just emailed emily from cardinal glennon and so we are donating the headbands next friday during the day because we are going to be on summer break. and also she said that she would like to get a picture of me and hannah with the headbands, because they like to spread the word about kids doing good things for other kids. and ted talks were yesterday and i feel like i did pretty well. although i only was up there for 3:15 minutes, mostly because i was really nervous. also tomorrow we have to turn in our computers so this will probably be my last blog post of the year. thanks for following my blog and looking at my posts.

i tried...

over the weekend i tried to sew some headbands but the sewing machine got jacked up. And I couldn't fix it because i don't know what was wrong and also my mom was out of town. And my dad doesn't doesn't even know how to turn on the machine so he wouldn't be the strongest contender.

nothing got done

this week nothing got done. but this weekend i plan to sew some headbands and possibly finish them, but i'm not sure if i will be able to because my mom is going out of town and i don't know how to change the thread on the sewing machine. and ted talks are in like 3 weeks i thing so that is coming up soon. So other than that i dont have much to do other than sewing them and donating then of course.

this past weekend

this past weekend i started sewing some headbands. I got done about four headbands, and i feel like the rest will be a breeze. Also hannah said that she will be done with her headbands in about a week since hers are really easy. so now all we need to do is to find a date that would work to donate. and also to try to raise some money to pay back our parents (and maybe a little for us ;) otherwise i feel like i am in a good position.

This week nothing got done with headbands. But i have been emailing someone from cardinal glennon and have been trying to figure out a date to donate the headbands to Cardinal Glennon. It looks like any time in may would work. I have to ask Hannah when she thinks she will be done. But otherwise all i have to do is sew the headbands.

A lot has gotten done

 These are what the headbands look like. So far I have made 25 and I think I might make more cause I have a lot more time than I expected. And then I could sell some, and make money to give to my mom so I could pay her back for all of the fabric. Over the past weekend I made 11 headbands.   As of right now I am all out of fabric so sometime soon I have to go to Hobby Lobby with my mom.

I know i already posted...

I know that i have already posted today, but i there is a slight change of plans. So now me and Hannah are teaming up cause she needed a new idea. And i am still going to make headbands and so is Hannah but she is making a different type. I am still donating to Cardinal Glennon. Also we might do a fundraiser to get money to pay back our parents for the fabric. But today we went down to talk to the principal to see if we could do a fundraiser but the school is doing one in a few weeks, but if they weren't then they would say yes. And my goal for the headbands is now 25 - 30 cause Hannah will make about the same also. So all of this just happened since the last time i posted.  

nothing really got done

This week nothing really got done. I have kinda worked on my checkpoint  assignment which is a slide show. And this weekend  I plan to get some headbands done since i am not really doing anything. Also i don't really think that i will be able to get 50 headbands, my goal is now 30 and i have 13. So I need to get quite a few done.

A lot has gotten done...

Spring Break was very good! I got a lot done. I got a sewing machine for my birthday which is good. So now I can mess around with it and get used to it so then i can sew my headbands. And over spring break I got done 13 headbands which is less than I expected but still ok. Also I am going to change the design of the headbands so that the ends at the bottom won't be sewn together so then they can knot it together to fit their head size.

let's get started

I am super excited for spring break, which is tomorrow and i plan to get a lot done cause i am not going anywhere. My goal is to get done 25 maybe so them i only have to do 24 more.  And that might seem like a lot but the headbands are really simple to make. All you have to do is cut the fabric, then make the knot, then sew it together. And i am excited to donate them to the hospital when they are done.

Spring Break...

Next week is spring break and i expect to get a lot of headbands done since we are not going anywhere. once i get going i will be getting a lot done really fast. And before i know it i will be done with my 50 headbands. april is coming up and  only have one headband done, so i'm a little worried. Also i might have to make more than 50 headbands cause i might be selling them at a run that another group is doing for their 20% project.

one down 49 to go

So my birthday is coming up and my mom said that i "might"(which means i probably will) get a sewing machine for my birthday. So what i plan to do is to make all of the headbands and then sew them. And I have made some big improvement, I have made one headband! : / So I really need to work on that, whoops. Otherwise i haven't really done much since the idea showcase.

Idea Showcase

The other day was the idea showcase. Over all I  feel like i did pretty good. I have attached a picture of my poster (and my feet.) The showcase was very long and a lot of people came through to look at our posters. I felt that after people came to look at the posters that they really liked it. After the showcase i felt pretty confident with my project. Also not as many people came through as i thought.

Starting the Headbands...

All I have to do for the idea showcase is print off my paragraphs and put them on my poster. Last night I started on the headbands. First I used old fabric so I can see how to hot glue it. I feel like I can make 50 headbands by april and I am really excited to keep making more. I know this is short but i don't know what else to put, cause i didn't do much this week.

Preparing for Idea Showcase

Right now I am preparing for the Idea Showcase. I have my poster at home and I have about half of my parts for the idea showcase typed out.  Last night I got different fabric because with my old fabric it wasn't double sided so it showed white and it didn't look good. But I got some gray fabric and pink fabric, and I am excited to start. It should be easier to work now that I have the right fabric.
Also I am kind of teaming up with another group so that i can make some money and pay back my mom for the fabric.
I know that this is not relevant but i am getting another doggie and I am really excited!! :)

I've Been Busy...

So I still haven't started the headbands yet. : / I got back from Costa Rica on Monday night, and I have had a ton of homework that I need to do. So this weekend I am going to start headbands, and i'm not just saying that, I am actually going to start this weekend.
Also I need to figure out a way to get money so I can pay for the fabric and all of my materials. What I am thinking on doing is making some separate and selling those and with the money I make I would get supplies with that.
And on Feb. 16 we are having an idea showcase. That is where we are going to create a poster and have tons of people walk through and look at our posters. So I also have to do that. So I have been pretty busy.

Good News!

This week I have been going back and forth with someone from Cardinal Glennon (a children's hospital), and we have decided that I am going to try to make 50 headbands by April. I know that this is a short post but I needed to blog about it. I am really excited to get started, but I haven't started any headbands yet.

This Week...

This week my goal is to start creating some headbands but I don't know how many I am going to get done. I have a bunch of things going on, Wednesday I have an orchestra concert, and next week my family leaves for a vacation. {we're going to Costa Rica :) }So we are going to have to pack for it and we still have to get some stuff. But I am going to get as many as I can done this week.
I just sent a email about me donating my headbands and I really hope that the person responds and I am able to do all of this!
Also I am going back and forth between sewing the ends together or hot gluing them, I have a hot glue gun but I don't know how to use a sewing machine, I could always hand sew them but I don't think that that would look as good. I'll keep thinking though.

The Next Step...

My next step for 20% time would be to start making the headbands. So what I am going to do is make at least 50 headbands (that's my goal) and make and collect them throughout the rest of the school year. And maybe in mid April my mom and I would go to children's hospital, or I would ship them there. I haven't done much since pich day. And I have to email somebody at children's to see if my whole idea can work. Cause if the people at children's say I can't send the headbands then I will have to work something out.
