Wacky Egg Cosies


I am going to try and do two things at once today with this post. One is to show you that youngsters stitching in schools is still very alive despite some very silly blogs I have stumbled on and not returned to over the past 18 months and to try and take part in Nannybirds Wacky Wednesday. Having the same Year 7 group all day is a bit Wacky anyway and knackers you for the rest of the week, we have had a lot of success with the work we have done and made many things. So feast your eyes on these little lovelies.....
This is a selection of the Egg cosies that they finished today and were proudly taken home. We went through what felt is and why it is different to cotton fabric. Then we had a basic run through of how felt could be made by hand.
I buy this through the school catalogue.

We had looked at abstract design as part of their wall hangings so we made an abstract felt design. It is a little messy, which they love, and a few volunteers make it fun the watch. It is not fully dried yet but when it is I shall cut it up and they can have a section each which they can then compare their shop bought felt with.Check Spelling


I have made several Chick Egg Cosies and I have now started some basic egg shaped one which I shall try and list in Folksy for UK buyers only so that they can get to you in time. I am now off to my sewing group to do some more work on my blue and white quilt.


Bye for now.

Those egg cosies are fabulous. Do you take Year 7 in rotation with other subjects? My daughter is Yr 7, but has done no textiles as yet - I'm wondering if it will appear later on - so far she's had Food Tech, Res Mat, Graphics, Performing Arts ... is Textiles next, I wonder?! x
