This half-term Form 5 have designed and made felt bookmarks in their Textiles lessons. They have sewn using cross stitch, chain stitch, running stitch and, zig-zag stitch to create their designs. They added buttons and ribbon to embellish their work.
Some children learnt how to sew a blanket stitch to attach the back to the front of their bookmarks. This was a tricky stitch to master, and a lot of perseverance and concentration was required!
The children are very pleased with their finished bookmarks, which can be viewed in the Gallery.
