For carnival this year, each class has been asked to put together a basket to raffle off. With so many Minecraft fans in our class, I thought that would be a fun theme. We have a big group, so we decided to do 2 different projects – a quilt and a gift basket. The students all signed up for an item to bring; the list is here. If you are having difficulty finding the item your child signed up for, let me know. The fabric can have a print or design, but it should be all green or black depending on what your child signed up for (for example, a green and white striped fabric would not work, but a fabric with several shades of green would be okay). If you would rather have me pick up the fabric, you can send in $5 with your child. I wasn't sure what the best way to do this would be, but either way works for me.
Please turn in the quilt materials by February 6th so that we will have time to put it together. I’m going to bring my sewing machine to school so I think the kids will have fun helping with that. All of the other items can be turned in any time before March 1st.
Here are some pictures to give you an idea of what we’re doing.
