A cute little pocket, festive for Fall and fun for popping stuff into. We use it for tea to say, “Happy Thanksgiving!” to our children’s teachers. Materials Felt Fabric scissors Fabric glue (we used sewing for some parts instead, but glue would be a simple, quick option) Smock Directions Cut out two copies of your pumpkin or apple. If you would prefer your child not to use fabric scissors, have them draw their shape on a piece of paper, cut it out, pin it to the felt and have an adult cut them out. Cut the top half off of one of your copies. If you are sewing, sew the top of the bottom portion to provide a finished edge. Cut out a leaf and a stem. We sewed around the edges. Sew the top (the half) to the bottom (the whole) of your apple or pumpkin around the perimeter. Glue or sew on your stem and leaf. Allow it to dry overnight. Pop in your tea or other special treat for a neighbour, friend or relative! Purpose Learning how to make a pocket Cutting different materials Safety Notes Fabric scissors can be quite sharp. Use with supervision and care. We suggested a smock if you use fabric glue so you don’t accidentally glue your project to your clothes! If you are sewing by machine, have an adult do it or based on your child’s age and abilities, provide direct supervision and guidance.
