An Amazon Adventure
As part of our Amazon Adventure topic, the children had the design brief of creating a hanging organiser that could be used by an explorer in the rainforest. The children analysed existing products and then designed their own.
The children then created their organisers using calico fabric, felt and thread. They had to cut their own patterns and pockets out along with any decorative details. They had to hem the edges of their pockets and organiser before pinning/tacking them together and sewing them to join them. The children had to use a running stitch to do this along with learning how to thread their own needles and knot their thread.
