Hand Made Cloth

No doubt these photos would be much better with adorable children painting their amazing hand made cloth. In fact I know they would because I know the adorable children, and they're, well, adorable!

But here's the way it was. Imagine four 9 to 11 year olds sitting in these chairs and painting, with big globs of paint.

Now, imagine that there is another table just like the one above only about four feet to the left of the picture with three other children with scissors, cutting out their pattern of a stuffed critter and then using sharp pins to hold the figure together and then threading a needle to sew on eyes and actually sewing the critter!

Lions and tigers and bears, O MY!

Thank goodness I had the help of a wonderful grandma of one of the students.

But you understand why I didn't think of the camera until AFTER they had all gone home.....

Thanks to Alisa Burke for the great idea. Here is her blog.
