Welcome to 'Make do and Mend'. Here we learn all about how to sew properly!
Our day began with firstly learning how to fold our clothes properly to make sure they are neat with minimal creases. We also learnt how to properly hand clothes - you can test our new skills at home!
The day then involved learning how to thread and knot a needle (which is much harder than it looks!) We also learned a range of different stitches to be able hold our clothes or material together, such as running stitch. Next, we learnt how to use a whip stitch so that if we had a ripped seam or tear in our clothes, we could mend them.
