Ms Mullen's Sixth class have been beavering away with an exciting Christmas craft project. They have recently taken to sewing and, having practised stitching pieces of material together and, taken very practical lessons in how to sew on buttons, they came up with their own unique Christmassy craft creations!
As you can see from the photos, the sewing classes were great for their concentration.
But look closely at the finished Christmas ornaments. Yes, every boys sewed several buttons onto the felt material. Then they stitched the felt shapes together, stuffed them and added the ribbon.
Who knows? These boys could be masters of craft making in years to come. They might develop their own craft companies. Or just be able to sew a button on a shirt. Either way, they've each got a Christmas creation to take pride of place on any Christmas tree.
Merry Christmas everyone!
