Miss Walton and Mrs Pybis challenged us to design, make and evaluate a mobile phone carrier for a 10-11 year old. We enjoyed the process but found it very challenging at times! We began by revising textiles techniques we had learned in other classes and then analysed existing products. Next we carried out research in the form of a questionnaire aimed at our target market. We developed our skills learning new techniques such as back stitch, cross stitch and blanket stitch. Thinking carefully about which sewing skills and fastenings we would use, we planned and designed our products and created pattern pieces. We enjoyed the making process the most and afterwards we evaluated our creations.
We enjoyed visiting Kirkby High to design, make and evaluate our own biscuits.
