    Hi all. I'm planning on doing a class patchwork blanket this term in DT to fit with my polar regions topic. Each child will complete a small square. But I'm unsure of how/what to get them to do? I was considering an initial or simple design on binca but think its a bit boring. Ideally I'd live to get them to cut out simple shapes and sew on chosen material but is this too hard??

    What do u think about running stitch on felt?? Too tough a material?
  3. What about making a rag rug? Dead easy & very effective.

    I would think cutting out their initial from one material and sewing it (running stitch) on to square would be fine. They could do French knots as decoration if time allowed.

    It doesn't sound hugely exciting, but my year 2 class would love it.

    Yeah I think mine would love it too. I'm thinking possibly making it even easier and sticking initial on and just doing a runnin stitch border round the edge of the square
