My Version of an Anthropologie Cardigan, part 4

Back to Part 3 in case you missed anything.  Next I put black sewing thread in my sewing machine, and then mostly followed along the lines (anywhere I didn’t follow the lines it didn’t really matter, because once the paper was gone who was to know?) Then I tore the paper away to expose the…

My Version of an Anthropologie Cardigan, part 3

The Touch Museum

Isaac and Emmie were asked to Participate in their school’s Black history month celebration, Isaac was the MC that welcomed everyone, and Emmie was supposed to dress as Bessie Coleman, a significant figure in African American history.
