⚙ How? 
Research results summary 
● Present​ the main results of your research (from A2) in a concise list of bullet points. This must be in your own words! 
● Illustrate​ your take-aways with imagery wherever you feel this reduces the amount of writing needed. However, don’t 
add images for the sake of adding images. Cite any images that you use. 
● Cite​ (in-text) from the sources that you found your answers from. Use the proper MLA format. 

DEFINITIONS  By consulting sources, I have found out: 


● Fabric is a material that can make clothes, curtains, and sheets. It is useful when 
we practice sewing something. Also, it contains cotton, nylon, silk and wool. Also, 
Fabrics are similar to textiles. 
● Textiles are similar to a texture. It is a cloth made by hand or the machine. It is 
also formed by weaving, knitting, knotting, and braiding. We use textiles when 
we make clothes or like bags. 
● Garments are the piece of clothing and produced by fabric and textiles. It is 
wearable for people. People can wear it and design it. It is useful when covering 
something. The texture of the garments are stiff and some are soft like cotton. 
● I found out that fabric, textiles and garments are very similar. The garments and 
fabric are especially similar. They have a lot of similarities. Fabric is a material that 
contains cotton, silk and wool and textiles are also formed with cotton, silk, nylon 
and wool. 

MANUFACTURING  By consulting sources about manufacturing cotton, I have found out: 


● First, pick cotton and dry it well, then remove the seeds by turning them into 
seeds. Put the seeded cotton on the cutting board, roll the cocoons with your 
hands, tie them in bundles, and hang the cocoons on the spinning wheel to pull 
the thread out. Hang the yarn on the loom and weave it. 
● There are the skills that can attach pieces of fabric together. First skill is running 
stitches. It is the skill that sews the thread by sewing up and down. Second skill is 
backstitch. We can do the stitch when we finish running stitch, reverse the piece 
of cotton and then stitch the same way. The last stitch is overstitch. We can 
attach pieces of fabric together with those skills. 

TECHNIQUES AND  By consulting sources such as, I have found out the following information that I can use for 
TOOLS FOR MAKING  designing and creating my product: 
● First step to draw a sewing pattern is to measure your body. Second, step is to 
sketch a design of the garments you want to make. Lastly, lay a sheet of paper 
flat and plot the length of your pattern. 
● We need thread, eyelets, studs, rivets, snap fasteners, velcro, fabric glue, contact 
adhesive, sewing machine, needles, seam ripper, fabric shears, rotary cutter, hole 
punch, rivet, eyelet setter and die 

CLIENT INFORMATION  By consulting sources such as, I have realized the following considerations should be 
taken into account when designing and creating my product: 
● I want to design for the people who live in the cold countries. In the cold country, 
people can die because of the cold. They are in danger. So, I want to make very 
very warm clothes to help people in cold countries. I want to make sure no one 
could die because of the cold. 
● This target refers to people who live in cold countries. 
● I think I need the furs to make very warm cloth but not animal fur. I think the color 
should not be blue or white. White makes people cold and black makes people 
warm so, I think they should wear black or yellow clothes. In the cold countries, it 
is surrounded by white snow, so I think it is good to wear black when they want 
to stick out. 

PRACTICAL SKILLS  By completing the practical skills tasks, I have learned the following skills (list & explain): 
● By completing the practical skills tasks, I have learned the skill of sew a button. It 
is the skill of sewing a button. I put the thread to the hole of the button and 
repeat continuously. Then, the button will attach to the fabric that I used to 
practice the skill. 
● By completing the practical skills tasks, I have learned the skill is that running 
stitch. It is the skill that sew the thread up and down and then, finish the knot. 
● By completing the practical skills tasks, I have learned the skill is called overstitch. 
I think it is the best stitching because the shape of this is so great to see but, 
when I finish sewing this skill, I ruin the overstitch. The shape seems too weird. 
● By completing the practical skills tasks, I have learned the basic skill called 
finishing knot. Before, I learned this skill, I didn’t know how to finish the knots but, 
when I learned this skill, now I know how to finish the knots. 
The skills that will be useful for my project are (list & explain why): 
● I think the skill called sewing a button could be useful for my project because 
when I make the clothes, I need to sew the button and attach it to my cloth so 
they can fasten a button. 
● I think the skill called running stitch could be useful for my project because when I 
make the clothes, I need to attach the clothes to clothes. 
The skills that I still need to practice or want to learn more about are (list & explain): 
● I think the skill that I still need to practice is over stitching. It is because when I 
first did the skill that is overstitch, it does not work very well. It got tangled and 
the shape of that skill was very weird. So, I think I need to practice more and 
improve my overstitching skills. 
● I think the second skill that I still need to practice and want to learn more about is 
sewing a button. The first time when I finished sewing a button, the report of it 
was not bad but the second time when I finished sewing a button, the back of the 
button seems very weird. In the video, the back of the button seems like ‘x’ shape 
but, when I finished it, it seemed strange. Therefore, I think I should learn more 
about the skill and want to finish the skill awesome.
