Sewing Club Spring Term 2011 - Year 3 & 4 - Patchwork

The children are learning how to create patchwork. They use square shaped card and fabric. We have taught them to tack their fabric to card and subsequently stitch them together. The aim is produce a waistcoat or an item they can wear. All the fabric is recycled and the card templates are from scraps of card.
