This is part 2 of weaving on a hula hoop frame with T-shirts. We introduced a new colour after a couple of rows. After the colour white the kids decided to choose the rainbow colour. We were lucky enough to have a rainbow tie dyed T-shirt. I showed them another weaving technique called Soumak.
After this we used some left over fleece from the softies I make. We choose orange. We cut strips 1 inch by 5inches long. My daughter said she wanted to make it like the sun. Her playdates agreed.
After a lot of debating over whether to do the tufting all the way around, it was decided to do it just half the way around in orange.
It’s great for the children to see this starting to come together as a piece bit by bit, it starts to grow over time.
We did a bit of thinking outside the box and one of the days, we were using air drying clay. We discussed maybe putting some on the dream catcher.
