Super Sewers!

What you need:
a needle,
some wool, and
a piece of hessian.

It also helps if you have patience and quite a bit of determination!

We chose an animal that we saw at Mt Bruce and drew it onto card and cut it out. These animals were traced onto hessian. Then we had to sew around the trace mark. Sewing was very tricky. Even threading the wool into the needle was tricky but some of us could do it by ourselves.

It took a few weeks to finish these. We think they look pretty fabulous. Come into our room and see them with your own eyes.

    What a lot of hard work, concentration and persistence went into this sewing. I think the children really enjoyed seeing the eels because there were lots of eels in the sewing. Super effort!
