Year 3 Textiles: Egyptian collars
Having learnt the basics of sewing and decorating fabric in key stage one, this unit built upon the children’s repertoire by introducing two new skills: cross-stitch and appliqué. After learning these techniques, the children applied their knowledge to the design, decoration and assembly of their very own Egyptian Usekh /Wesekh collars to represent their unique personalities.
We had lots of fun and overcome lots of challenges. We found threading cotton through the eye of the needle a challenge along with tying knots but with lots of practice we succeeded.
