With my Year 8 groups I like to make a bag as I go along to help show them various stages. One bag can usually help two groups at a time.
This time due to the amount of work on the go that I would cheat a little! I have had a bit of fleece with Winnie the Pooh on it for some time. Sophie did not want it so I carefully cut out the images and appliqued them on to the bag front.. Then cut a template for a capital J and added that.
I decided it needed something to add dimension to the design, so a fabric flower with a button in the middle to help attach it to the bag.
A white cotton drawstring is added so that it is easy to open, close and hang up on a peg.
Resulting in a useful and cute PE bag for Jessica who has just turned 4 and will be starting Reception in September and lives one door down from us.
It got a lot of "aahhhs" from my Year 8 group and they in turn saw various stages and techniques as my bag took shape each lesson which they were then able to learn and apply to their own designs.
I hope she likes it!
