Sewing Lessons

video

One of the fifth graders became interested in a couple of quilty things I had in my upstairs classroom.  She was more and more curious about some of my table runners.  She wondered if she could come after school and learn to do some piecing and quilting.  She ended up coming for a total of 6 sessions and by then she had a cute little mug rug that she wrapped up for her mom as a surprise Christmas gift.  I bet she will be back for more lessons.  I think she said she wants to make a pillow next!

Ornaments From Seashells

This is the start of some clever angel ornaments.  I found the idea while browsing the web looking for entries to my Pinterest account. 

We will be making these sweet ornaments next week as a reward activity.  The students that signed up have used 5 reward coupons to be able to do this craft.

I have to add a few trims and hanging cords to my samples, but they are almost finished.
