    We are having a curriculum enrichment day next month, I need ideas for a textiles project that can be completed in 1hr 15 mins. I have been thinking about making an advent calendar with each student making apart of it. Any body got any other thoughts or ideas? Thanks in anticipation.

  3. Hello,
    Why dont you try some Furoshiki fabric wrapping to make products? Students could print and hem (by hand or machine) their own squares of fabric and then fold and tie the fabric to make a range of products, furoshiki can also be used for gift wrapping. The instant bags and water bottle carriers are always winner for me. It has good links with sustainability too as when used as gift wrappings they can be re-used.
    More details on my blog,

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for that info, it has started me on a web search to find out how to do it! It looks very interesting. I think it will be great to do on the day and also as a very quick intro project with lower school
    I hope I can find out how to to it in time!
