A 4th grade teacher proposed simple curve stitching with students this year and it was a smash hit. We started with a simple square and watched as many students got more creative. Great way to practice sewing and math! Thank you for this. I am going to make yours as a sample that might inspire more students! Just amazing.

Very cute! Thank you for the detail on Maker settings. I have some aluminum can projects in mind and this is very helpful. :) Thanks for sharing!
I love this!! I can't wait to make some for my garden. Thank you so much for sharing!
What a superb idea! I've done something similar with 3D printed molds, but I love that you can hand design this! Thank you for the inspiration!!

A challenge!! Great gift from a makerspace! I used 3 different colors, which serendipitously made the final assembly much easier. Thanks for sharing!!
Thank you for posting this! It's going on my to-do list! Great point about oiling before gluing. I ruined a project once by staining after I glued.
I don't know if it would ruin the pieces with the suction cups, but I used to frequently run my children's LEGOs through the dishwasher in a mesh bag. If my kids were little I'd definitely do this (they're in college now)! I'm going to make a set for a friend who just had a baby. Thanks for posting!!
What a great way to facilitate conversation! Love it. I wish I had a party to go to so I could make this!

I can't wait to build this feedback device using Makey Makey for my classroom. I didn't want to collect data for a spreadsheet so I modified the data to display as a graph on the first backdrop. I'll put the matching emojis on my collector. Here is the file:https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/334286063/editor

Starting a Handmade Business
Hi Seamaster,Yes, I am a makerspace teacher. This project is the result of a program for passion-based learning that students in grades 6-8 may apply. It is an extracurricular undertaking as most of the work is done outside of school (home, before school and after school, some weekends). Inspired by some of my projects, this student applied to learn about how the laser cutter might be used to make jewelry. Students keep portfolios (Google Sites) to document their projects and learning. She is now my laser cutting expert!Other work in the space is integrated into classroom projects.
Yes, they are the identical design to the 3D printed earrings in my other Instructable, but designed and fabricated in two very different ways. Laser Cutting is much, much faster and there are more color/style options with acrylic. 3D printing is more accessible to users, but far fewer colors exist. Something notable is that the same Tinkercad design for these earrings can be downloaded for use to either a 3D printer (.stl) OR a laser cutter (.svg).
