On Thursday morning, we left Bailey at home making Warhammer scenery from polystyrene, it stills needs to be painted before he will let me put a photo on the blog though! Ruben went very happily off to play at his friend R's and the girls and I went off to Sew in the City Cafe for our monthly home ed session.
To start the children had to choose which shape to make their brooch, Danielle had used different shapes such as birds, owls, even Alice in Wonderland and also had lots of creative books such as the Doodle books which are a huge hit in our house, out so you could make your own template should you wish too. Piper picked out a template of a lady's face as she thought it looked like the Barbie silhouette. Cordelia picked an owl template, she has a real thing for owls at present. After deciding which template to use, another 10 minutes were taken up by choosing materials. Danielle said felt was best for the backing of the brooch and lots of colours were provided. Piper chose a cream piece of felt to start with.
