Students enrolled in a textiles arts class at Kyrene Aprende Middle School have used their newfound skills to fill an important community need.
The class created over 100 pet blankets that were then donated to the Arizona Humane Society to help homeless animals awaiting adoption.
“Students were able to show off their sewing skills, which included sewing 5/8" straight seams, pivoting & clipping corners and creating top stitch ¼" seams,” the Kyrene School District said on Facebook. “They utilized fabric donated by the community and even repurposed fabric used in the Jaguar Players production of ‘You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown.’”
The Arizona Humane Society has locations in Phoenix at South Mountain and Sunnyslope, and is building a third in the Papago Park area in Tempe.
