Waffle Embroidered Pillows in First Grade

English Class first graders used the Swedish weaving huck system of embroidery (A.k.a as waffle embroidery) to create 40 x 40 cm pillow covers for themselves.   Some of the children wanted to follow traditional patterns for their pillow covers. Others got very creative in their expression and wound up with Jedi knights, light sabres, dogs, flowers and trees.
