Make Do and Mend

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.


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 and back stitch. We then learned how to sew on a button effectively so that we are able to fix or mend our clothes. 


Finally, when we brought all of our skills together, we designed and made our own little coin purses that were fastened with a button of our choice.

Learning how to thread a needle...tricky stuff!
Our spectacular purses...all hand-made by SSJ!
