Year 4 Felty Update

Just a little update!

Year 4s have been doing some pretty fantastic sewing in the art room. Year 4s have finished sewing on the details for the front of their felty and are currently in the middle of sewing their felty pieces together using the overstitch. Year 4s are trying their very best to keep their stitches small and tidy. Can you believe these were done by 9 year olds?

Textiles with the Year 3s and 4s

Year 3s are weaving their very own story using a cardboard loom and wool! This is one that I have been doing with the Year 3s for the last 3 years. I just think it is such a lovely processes and the kids feel really going about what they are creating.

Year 4s are creating FELTIES! This year I gave classes a choice between pillows and felties and they all chose felties (I should have seen this coming). On the bright side, I don't have to cut out 100s of 30cm by 30cm calico pieces. This week we are learning to stitch our felt pieces together. 

Before we voted, I warned the Year 4s that this was a challenging project and that I was a bit nervous about it, but they really have proven me wrong. Fingers crossed, sewing goes well! More pictures soon!
