Burlap Stitching

Standard

Grade one students used yarn and burlap to create these stitched images.

Students  used a template and chalk to trace a heart, circle (for the sun) or star. They used blunt darning needles with the yarn. I taught them how to create a simple running stitch.  Once complete, we used chopsticks and yarn to create a hanger. I did serge the edge of these so they would not fray but preventing fraying can be achieved with simple sewing, a line of glue or even tape.
