Our friends made felt stuffies this week. Students selected a shape, traced the pattern onto felt, cut it out and stitched the felt shapes together by hand. .Five students were able to successfully complete their masterpieces. Others were close to finishing. Students asked to make a second felt stuffie, so we will do that next club session.
Club member Bismark offered his assistance with the selection of die cuts Mrs. Kent purchased to fit the club's Sizzix Big Kick. The school dies are too thick to go through this particular machine. Be on the look-out for a heart, snowman, embossed pumpkin, teddy bear, dog, cat and Christmas tree. Mrs. Kent may have some other die shapes at home that will fit this machine. She will bring them to club on Friday. We will cut our felt shapes from these dies. Hopefully, students will learn that having the right tool makes the job go faster and easier.
