The children in Y5/6 designed and made felt mobile phone cases.

First they had to decide on the design criteria and specification (the intended user, the aesthetic appeal and functionality) . Then they created annotated drawings to show what it would look like from the front, side and back.

The next stage was to create a step by step plan of how the cases would constructed, after they had learned and practised stitching styles, including: back stitch. whip stitch, running stitch and blanket stitch.

Then it was time to measure the phones to create the correct size template so the challenge of sewing and decorating began! 

Finally they evaluated their cases against the original design criteria.
