Create an Egg Cosy
Continuing on from sewing your purse last week, test your skills and create an egg cosy!
What you do: Help your child choose a piece of fabric, then cut out two semi-oval shapes (two different fabrics can work nicely). They’ll need to use an egg to help them measure their fabric shapes, then sew them together, leaving a hole at the bottom where the egg goes.
They're learning about... Measuring, marking out, cutting and shaping a range of materials, and assembling, joining and combining components and materials accurately.
Create your own button purse to keep your money in! all you will need is some felt, needle and thread and a button. Be sure to design your purse first so you have an idea of what your creation should look like.
Newspaper shoe challenge
Create your own shoes for the newspaper shoe challenge! Design you shoe considering: Who will be wearing the shoes? What season would you wear these shoes? How will they stay on your feet? Are they durable?
You will need newspaper, sellotape/glue, scissors and your design idea to follow.
Here are some ideas to inspire you!
