This week in the Handwork room


I just made her up by crocheting in a round doll.....not too bad for first time.....Spring is here! start with chain of 3 go back into first stitch about 5 times. start to work in a round until you have the desired leg size. work on next leg the same way. connect the legs and work in a round to make the torso. decrease near the top to make it thinner. Then do the same for the arms....supper easy!
Made by a 7th grader
the pizza guy was made by a 7th grader. My kids are so talented! another one was finished on the same day but he was made to look like our Garden Teacher "Farmer Tony" so we had to go out to Garden and gift him his doll.
The red pot holder is made by a 2nd grader and the thread rack is used by 4th, 6th and 8th grade. The cross stitch is 4th grade. The Flute cases are 1st grade
3rd grade puppets are almost done......stone soup here we come
3rd grade made looms from sticks.....my pre schooler is holding up her sisters work.
we will weave in flowers and grass and bark etc.

I love your first attempt!
Crocheted in the round is so much
fun, isn't it?
How did you make the arms,legs?
Round with decreases?
Wow, very well done indeed.
And your students work is so
inspiring.
My heart is filled with
joy when I see these photos.

This isn't post related, but I wasn't sure how to contact you... Is there an organization like the Association of North American Waldorf Music Educators (ANAWME) for Waldorf Handwork and Art teachers?? Thanks! wednesdayo@hotmail.com

Stick looms, very nice. Is it indeed Spring in your area? Enjoy it!
