PHOTOS: Fashion Design Forms Felt Friends

The Fashion Design-1 students delivered the monster dolls they created to students at Caprock Elementary School on April 13, 2022. The fashion design students received drawings of monsters created by the elementary students and created realistic dolls to amaze younger students.

“I had seen that other teachers had done this project in the past in other districts and thought it would be great fun to bring it to Keller ISD,” said Julie Steely, design teacher from fashion.

Steely and first grade teacher Rocio Groover collaborated together and created this project to benefit high school and elementary school students. The fashion design students had created the dolls from scratch. Their work ranged from selecting the felt color they wanted to stuffing the doll with polyfill.

“I was excited to see these little kids and I was excited to do something they wanted and had done themselves,” said second-grader Mariangela Bassett-Lupovici. “I was excited to bring something they thought to life.”
