Pirate Mariam Sews

Thursday, January 19th, 2006

My student, Pirate Mariam, is sewing these days. She made some fun striped pants, see photo on her link above. Also check out the little link “sweater” under the photos. She is using sharpie markers to embellish a hoodie and it is very cool and creative.
