Year 5 Textiles: Stuffed Toys

Creating their own stuffed toy is a really fun project as children can bring their drawings to life and can make them as challenging or as simple as they choose. Not only does this topic give them the chance to apply skills they have learned in previous topics, it also introduces them to a new stitch – blanket stitch
