homework


Miss M will most probably tell me off for showing you this, but oh well, I have got used to being told off by my kids.  This year is Miss M's first year at High School and she finished her soft materials homework over the weekend.  The brief was to make/decorate a container to keep all your supplies in for soft materials (sewing).  She knew exactly what she wanted - a sewing wallet or hussif, which I am not sure the teacher had in mind, after going through my fabric stash and also her own (yes my 13 year old daughter already has her own fabric stash.....there is no hope for her).  She chose her fabrics.  My input was technical advice (order of construction, supervision of first use of rotary cutter etc) and some quick unpicking duties when frustration levels reached an all time high towards the end of Sunday (oh how I would love to have someone on hand to do unpicking for me!)

Above is the outside of her sewing wallet or hussif.  Here is the inside (they had to include a list of materials).



and lastly her needle book...


All the materials used were from our respective stashes, so there is a reason that we need to keep such a good supply of fabrics, ribbons etc :)

Wow - that is amazingly awesome (wonder what the teacher is going to think... if I was the teacher I'd be drooling). xoxo

How wonderful ... If one of my students brought in homework like that I'd be showing everyone in the staffroom. Excellence level if I ever saw it!
