In this year 8 project students make a bag that includes machine embroidery and mark making with fabric paint. Through the construction of the bag, students become competent at threading up the sewing machine, knowing the names of the different parts and develop their knowledge of seams, sewing them with accuracy. This experiment with mark-making and start to look at the formal elements when analysing their samples and work. This knowledge organiser includes some potential retrieval questions that could be asked of students to check that they have been learning their knowledge organiser. My students are expected to learn different sections for homework. If you find this resource useful or have any feedback,  please leave a review.

Fabric Paint & Applique Instructions

These learning mats are give simple instructions of how to complete a fabric paint sample and also a felt applique sample with hand embroidery. I use these with year 7 students, for their first Textiles rotation. Students sample these techniques and evaluate them. They then use the techniques on their POP Art cushion. These are useful for differentiation, helping to support students recall information and complete their techniques successfully. If you have any feedback please do review the resource. Thank you
