Christmas term is in full swing and we are close to finishing our seasonal project.
They just need the front and back sewn together and a bit of stuffing.
Super easy to sew and they look so cute.
Any ideas for a new year make? Something with a date on perhaps?

Second project.

My super sewers completed a second project last term.
 Door hangers with their initials on.
The fabric is from the wonderful Paper and String and I have plenty left for other projects. I thinking of a garland spelling out Merry Christmas.
I wonderful picture of the children showing off their creations but sadly I can't post it due to safe guarding issues. Got to keep those kiddie safe.
This term we are getting into Christmas mode and kicking off with penguins. I have a new group of kids and they seem very capable. Will have to plan many projects for this bunch I think.

Getting ready for a new term.

The planning has been going on all holidays.
Many items were stitched in a trial run.
Then the cutting began.
First up will be little red apples.
You can get the pattern from Molly Makes Issue 6, template found online here.
Next up we will be making felt cup cake purses. The pattern can be found here and is by a lovely lady called Sarah who has the most fantastic felt store and a very generous heart as she donated off cuts to my sewing club :-)

And a final make is the school banner I made during the holidays.
It was designed by one of the pupils (a 5 year old) and I spent a couple of weeks transfering her design into a large banner.Hope she thinks I've done it justice.

Right time to do the weeks shopping and get everything ready for the new term tomorrow.

Sewing Club continues..

This year has been very successful for the sewing club.
Busy busy busy making project after project.
A variation of a pattern by Snowy bliss on etsy. I made the pattern smaller and simplified it. I do all the cutting myself to save on wastage and the pattern isn't copied or shared out. It's all about the sewing.
Butterflies from craft kit by Sarah at paper and string.
Union Jacks to celebrate the Queens Jubilee. 3 of my students were away on holiday for this photo, but all completed on time.
What will next term bring?
Autumn apples, mini monsters and then Christmas will begin with tree decorations galore.
