3rd Grade Sewn Initials

      The third graders at Suffield enjoyed learning simple sewing techniques and creating some fiber art.  They sewed initials from their names and borders with different yarns and strings using different methods.  Once the students completed their initials and borders, they were challenged to add beads and buttons and to add any other embellishments their artwork needed.

I'm a 1st year teacher and I just LOVE this project! I've already done one weaving thing with my 3rd graders this year but I would love to use this next year. Could you send me more detailed instructions?? And where would I get that material at a good cost? (I have 120+ 3rd graders...) My email is lhartz06@gmail.com. Thanks!
