From there, Sheila uses these techniques to show how to create a Star Tip block involving triangles in a row by row assembly method.

We end the show with a fashion free-for-all as Tami Pfeil visits to demonstrate all the different types of apparel and accessories you can make out of unusual fabric, culminating in an audience member fashion show.
