Designing, Making and Evaluating Felt Pouches in Year 2!

Year 2 have had lots of fun this week designing, making and evaluating their own felt pouches this week in Design and Technology.
We firstly practised running stitches on paper and then on a scrap piece of felt. Secondly we progressed onto sewing two templates together to make our pouch. We then designed a motif in a contrasting colour which we stuck on our pouches using PVA glue. Finally, we added Velcro to our product so that the pouch can open and close.
We enjoyed evaluating our designs, thinking about what we liked and what we would do differently next time. It was lots of fun to learn how to sew for the first time!
