I come from a long line of quilters. Though I personally do not quilt, I love fabric!!! Colors, patterns, designs....going through the fabric section at Jo-Ann's or Hobby Lobby is like going to an art gallery for me! I've inherited a ton of fabric for my classroom!!! I do a quilt lesson with 4th grade, but I'm dreaming of some new projects. The hardest part, I find, when using fabric with elementary students is cutting it! Our class scissors are not great at cutting fabric after hacking into a million pieces of paper over the years. So today I backed a ton of fabric with paper. In theory...this will give the scissors more traction(I think). So now I'm dreaming of fun projects!! I think I may do a mixed media painting with a object as an inspiration piece? Any other fun ideas??? Share!!!
