Basic Facts

If you are one of the people who set 'basic facts' as one of your goals for your Snapshot, then this link is SO for you.  Some great activities and we can even print them out at school if you would like to have a go at them.

My Awesome Thing

My Awesome Thing.

You know when you’re using felts and one runs out, so you have to get another one? Instead make your own. “But how do you actually make it?” you ask. This is how… I really don’t know, ask a professional, they’ll know.
Don’t ask me. Well, you could but I don’t know.
Let’s just get back on the subject…

At MoTec I am making a calendar and my subject Is Pok√©mon. I have to finish it soon. I am going to have lots of work to do. 
Cam has done motorbikes on his calendar and I have made a cushion, weetbag, box and now a calendar.

Awesome Thing

Awesome things: Spider
Don’t you ever wonder why people get scared of a spider? I know they look pretty scary, but why do you get scared over a little spider? It is so small and it can’t eat you in one gulp. It’s really weird how some people get scared or an 8 legged bug that is the size of an eye ball.

Important Moment

MoTec

Last week at MoTec I finished off my cushion.

My cushion is black and has a dog with a bone on it.  It took me two sessions at MoTec to finish it.

Now I am making a foot stool.  We have to sew two straight rows down a piece of square fabric. After that we have to make up a square frame, then we have to stick the fabric onto the frame.

It is going to be fun to make it and it will look good.
