After learning about Senufo mud cloths, 5th graders chose an animal and drew it on a piece of paper. The animal drawing was transferred to a piece of white cloth by placing the drawing underneath the cloth and using a Sharpie. Students added pattern to their animal and added color to the background using either warm or cool colors. Next, the students learned how to whipstich and sewed their cloth to a piece of felt. The project was complete once it was stuffed with polyester filling and sewn closed. I have found that the students really enjoying weaving and sewing projects. Great job, 5th Grade!
