Make do and Mend

Year 6 'make do and mend' sewing project.

Last half-term, we were learning about World War 2. As part of the unit, we learnt about how clothing was rationed during this time. Many people during that time would use their old clothing and 'make do and mend'. To link in with our current class reading book Goodnight Mr Tom, the students were tasked with designing and making clothing for a child's teddy that would be going with them when they had been evacuated. As part of the process, the students learnt how to complete a straight, back and blanket stitch as well as sew on a button.
