When I saw the book, Make It by Jane Bull, I thought it would be a perfect book to accompany Little J's inventor's box. He has been building his own creations with his box, but was excited to have another source of inspiration and instruction. I wouldn't say that it has a bunch of new ideas, but it brings old favorites to light again.
Today, we chose to work on a fabric weaving project together. We started by making a cardboard frame and wound the base fabric around it (the warp). Little J then started weaving the various fabrics through (the weft). Once finished we cut the fabric off the back and tied it off.
Little J put it with our nature tray. I think it turned out pretty nice!
