All Patched Up {Eagle Lake Elementary Art Week}

Our Project: Patchwork Pinwheels 

Our tables all ready for students to show up. Pattern + fabric is scattered around, just ready for some creative kids to turn it into something pretty.

We talked about repeating patterns and the kids drafted their own triangle patterns to cut around.  Here is a peek at one of the first ones getting made.  Cute chevrons!

Here is Mrs. M giving instruction with the video cam on proper gluing technique.  She is so smart, I wouldn't have figured out the kids needed coaching on how much glue to use until all the projects were dripping with it. Experience really is the best teacher, isn't it?  ;)

Here is a different twist on the pinwheel style. Cutting all those triangle pieces out of fabric is hard work, but the kids were such champs.  Excellent cutting skills, I was impressed! 

Here is a super bright one. Looks like summer, don't you think?

Here is one with a Heather Bailey print. I think she'd like it.  Two thumbs up here.

It was a successful day and I think there are some future sewing enthusiasts roaming those halls.  I can't wait to see the patchwork wall once all the classes have completed their squares.
Thanks for the fun time and allowing me to spend time with your students. Can't wait to do it again tomorrow!  #spreadthehandmadelove
