Assignment #1- Internet Happiness

With the pandemic still in full swing and me spending more time at home, I decided to get back to the old things that used to make me happy like 90’s Hip-Hop and making House/Soul party mixes on my dj system.  My favorite 90’s Hip-Hop group used to be A Tribe Called Quest.  So I recently started watching their videos and reminiscing how me and my friends would imitate them.  My favorite song & video by them was “I Left My Wallet in El Segundo.”

Before the pandemic I had taken a beginner’s sewing class in the city to learn to make my own shirts, but I never did much with it.  Now with time on my hands, I decided to give creativity a shot.  I found a clothing website called D’iyanu that sold cool shirts & hoodies for tall men my size.  The website’s clothing style kinda reminded me of a Tribe Called Quest.  I bought a couple of short sleeve shirts and a cool hoodie from them.

Then I decided to put my beginner’s sewing skills to work and make my own hoodies.

Hoodies I made using African fabric I had at home.

Not too bad for a beginner, thanks to the internet!
