Today is a Homeschooling day with Miss E. I really look forward to Wednesdays!
Miss E always arrives brim full of ideas of what she would like to do and last week she wanted to make a card wallet for her Mum for Mother’s Day.
The local newspaper have been offering vouchers to collect for annual family tickets for the Weymouth Sea Life Centre. Each member of the family have been issued with a card and Miss E wanted to make a special wallet to keep the 5 cards in.
we used some of the advertising cards that have been sent to me to make sure we had the size just right.
There are always frustrating moments in the making process, and it was hard for Miss E to keep the tape from wrinkling. I have found a useful little mantra to keep frustration at bay
it is not wrong, it is just not yet finished
So we stuck a fish shape over the wrinkles, and Miss E realised that mistakes can lead to improvements. We added a length of black elastic recycled from some packaging to wrap round it, a couple of stitches to make it the right size, and Miss E put a little strip of Duck Tape to cover the stitches. Ta dah!
