Product and Pictorial Log 1
Activity: Today I purchased fabric at the store. Later on, I made my first trial baby blanket.
Commentary: On Saturday, September 3rd, 2016, my mom and I drove to our local Walmart to get some different fabric patterns. We took one of my daughter's lovies with us to help give an idea of the size I wanted to make. Lovies are small baby blankets. Lovies are usually thick, soft, and often have different colored fabric on each side. At Walmart, I chose a girl pattern, a boy pattern, and a gender-neutral pattern. I also gathered three solid fabrics to go with each pattern. Next, we asked a Walmart employee in the craft section to help us cut out the fabric. I informed her that this was for my Senior Project and she was happy to help. I took out the Lovie I brought with me to tell the worker how big I wanted each piece of fabric to be. She then took scissors and cut the fabric. As I left I thanked the woman for helping me.
Photo Caption: These are the three different patterns I chose to purchase at Walmart. Once I came home, I cut the fabric into squares and started making the lovies.
Activity: I have arranged plans to meet with my facilitator at two o'clock to discuss my project. We will also talk about other possible ways I can advertise my product to other people.
Commentary: My facilitator came over my house to make sure I had been keeping up with my Senior Project. I showed my facilitator all my materials and demonstrated how I made the blankets. As we were wrapping up our meet, I took a picture with her.
Photo Caption: Today I met with my facilitator to show her the progress I have made so far on my project. I showed her the two trial lovies I had made and she was very pleased to see the progress.
Activity: I went with my facilitator to purchase more fabric. We wanted to gather some more unique and colorful designs so we went to Joann Fabrics.
Commentary: Today I met with my facilitator to discuss all the patterns I had already purchased. After looking at the patterns I had, we both decided it was best to buy some more; just have some variety. We went to Joann fabrics and I picked out some other designs I thought were going to look cute. I bought a few patterns and a few solids to match. We then asked an employee at Joann's to measure out the fabric and cut it for us; she was very willing to help me.
Photo Caption: These are the new pattern and solid fabrics I purchased at Joann Fabrics. Each of the patterns has a solid that will coordinate with it.
Product Log 2
Activity: I began to pick out the patterns I liked and matched it with a solid colored fabric. I started out by cutting each yard of fabric into equal pieces.
Commentary: I began to pick out the patterns I liked and matched it with a solid colored fabric. I started out by cutting each yard of fabric into equal pieces.
First off, I matched the patterns I wanted to pair together. I then took my fabric scissors and cut out the fabric into the size I desired. This took a considerably long time due to the large amount of fabric I had to cut out. I would fold the yards of fabric in half, then in half again till I got the right size. Then, I would cut a slit in the crease of the fold and open it up. I took my scissors and continued to cut the slit till it split the fabric in half. I used this method to cut the fabric because it saved lots of time, and I don’t have to worry about my pieces of fabric being uneven.
Photo Caption: I started to pick out what solid colors and what pattern I wanted to go together. I made a trial blanket of my patterns.
Saturday February 11th
Activity: I began to cut out the patterns I liked and matched it with a solid colored fabric. I started out by cutting each yard of fabric into equal pieces.
Commentary: I began by cutting up the pieces of fabric into even strips. I cut them very carefully as I did before to make sure each blanket was the same size. I would then tie the fabric together to finish off each individual blanket. I worked for 3 hours on cutting and tying the pieces of fabric together. I have made almost 20 blankets so far and I will continue to make more.
Photo Caption: Here are two patterns I have worked on the most. There is a boy pattern and a girly pattern.

Monday March 13th, 2017
Activity: I called up my facilitator and asked her if she minded meeting with me to discuss my senior project. She was happy I called and said to come on over.
Commentary: When I arrived at Susan's house, we started by taking pictures of the baby blankets I had completed. Susan Langley was very happy to see the blankets I had made. I gave her one to keep because she said she would love to have one. I explained to Susan what else I had to do to complete for the remainder of the Senior Project. She said she was proud of the work I have done and to keep up the hard work.
Photo Caption: This is a photo of my facilitator and I discussing the progress I had made on my baby blankets. My facilitator, Susan Langley, was happy to see the progress I have made.
Saturday March 11th, 2017
Activity: Today I worked on making more baby blankets. I worked for 2 hours on making several blankets.
Commentary: When I first started this project, I had some trouble getting the correct measurements for each blanket. Now that I have worked on so many blankets, I have finally gotten the hang of measuring. I am happy that I have overcome this struggle. I started working on the blankets by cutting out each individual piece of fabric. I cut out different patterns so that I could mix and match them. I laid my desired patterns out and their matches. I then cut out the tassles on the blankets. Cutting out the tassles isn’t too difficult but you have to be sure to make them even.
Photo Caption: This is my wonderful facilitator, Susan Langley. Susan has always been willing to help me work on my project to make improvements.
Wednesday March 1st, 2017
Activity: I took this hour to work on my website to start selling my baby blankets. I also talked to my facilitator about what her opinions were on how to start the online business.
Commentary: I am wanting to make my Facebook page to sell the baby blankets. I talked to my facilitator because she has started her own business so I knew she would have tips. Susan said that she thought that starting a Facebook page would be a great way to advertise the blankets. I also called Northside ATL to let them know that I would soon be making a delivery to their NICU. I am so excited to give the baby blankets to the hospital!
Photo Caption: I was showing my facilitator the blankets I had been working on since the last time I had met with her.
