So things must be going well... Back in this post I told you I've taken over the Sewing Club at my daughter's school and being a new venture I wasn't sure whether I would post about our projects. If it was going badly I wouldn't mention it, but I'm happy to report that after 3 weeks I'm still alive and enthusiastic about my new endeavour. As a first challenge I had them start with this owl.
Perhaps a slightly ambitious project, but a successful one as you can see from the examples below. (some have already gone home before I could get a picture, so these are some that are still in progress)
It has been a steep learning curve as I've discovered that dexterity of children ranges quite a bit from Year 3 to Year 6, but none the less they have produced the most darling creatures which they all seem to be quite proud of.
Next up on the project list is something that became a debate between me and my husband. I thought it would be nice to make a tissue holder, but as my DH pointed out, what 8 year old has need of a tissue holder? Well with half the pieces cut out the definition of out next project was swiftly changed to a mobile phone case. Armed with the pieces of felt I announced to the children that we would be making a mobile phone case. The children seemed quite excited at that idea, but what I hadn't anticipated was that they would know one manufacturer from another and I was bombarded with questions as to whether it would hold various iphones, ipods and blackberries!!? I had to be honest and say I wasn't sure, but if it didn't hold their mother's phone, they could always use it to hold a pack of tissues! LOL
Until next time...♥
