Today, we learnt how to sew using the running stitch.  We used the vocabulary push, pull, needle, thread, fabric as we were sewing.

We discussed the steps needed in order to make a Christmas tree decoration.  We found out what design criteria are, looked at some examples and came up with some suggestions of our own.  Once we knew what we needed to do, we got on with designing our own Christmas tree decoration.   We thought about the materials we needed and the joining stitch we will use.
