So we are FINALLY ''wrapping'' up these 3D sarcophaguses!! WOW what an adventure with my 5th graders! They really have taken on this project with great enthusiasm! It has been a big challenge for them but they really have been enjoying themselves and are super excited to see their mummy complete!
We cut both the front and back out and were very careful to making sure they were the same size. We added about five pins to hold the two in place while sewing.
Here is an up close image of a successful sewn piece. After students were done I glued fabric glue on the edges just to make sure they did not pull out. Sewing on this thin canvas was NOT easy!! We had a lot of fraying issues!
More complete sarcophaguses will be finished this week...hopefully!
