Another day for DfGI

5 Dec

https://www.daysforgirls.org

Here is a quick look at 160 shields in process (supporting 80 kits)…

Shields have five pieces:  Four from cotton prints and one PUL or polyurethane laminate.

Two pieces of the cotton print make the front at back of the shield (for maximum interest I choose different prints).

The other two pieces of cotton print are for “pockets”.  They are folded and topstitched before assembly.

If it is not obvious, this is a LOT of cutting and ironing.

Pairs, right side facing, Grouped in 10s

End view of dozens of “pockets” folded and top stitched. Ready for assembly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here I sew again, preparing to ship in 2018.
