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.
