Sewing for SantaStudents in the Fundamentals of Sewing Class used donated fabric to cut out Scotty Dog patterns and turned them into stuffed animals. These items were used to fill the stuffed animal category for the Shoebox Project, an annual project sponsored by Mehlville's National Honor Society which collects items that children might need. The MNHS then takes the items, wraps shoeboxes like Christmas presents, and delivers them to students that attend a school in need. This year, the Shoebox Project collected a record number of boxes and contributed approximately 55 dogs to the cause. The students in the Fundamentals of Sewing class did the cutting, sewing, stuffing and marking involved in making the dogs.
