I have spent most of today making a fabric version of my behaviour chart…
here is my old one:
It is based on the Clip chart Click here to view
All of my bits and pieces ready… It will be the first time that I have used the Silhouette Cameo to cut fabric!
First I cut out all the different coloured fabrics that I needed
Then I designed my writing for each section using my Silhouette Software – I originally wanted to cut my lettering out with felt but it REALLY didn’t work – I think it was the felt more than the machine – I even had the silhouette interfacing stuck on! In the end I went with cotton fabric – this worked well 🙂
I noticed that with the facing it is best to let is cool a bit before pealing off the backing.
Once I had placed all the writing in the correct place I was going to applique it to the chart – this didn’t look very nice :s
So…. I unpicked it and decided to use fabric glue instead 🙂
Next I pinned the chart to the black felt the wrong side out and then used my sewing machine to sew the two materials together.
Finally I ironed the chart and here is the finished article! What do you think? I can’t wait to use it in my classroom!
