I’ve been playing around with wall pockets again. My first attempt turned out not to be so sturdy. The corkboard is flexible and can bend a bit under it’s own weight when hanging and when I stuck a push pin in it, the pin point came out the back. Hmmmm. To solve both problems, I added a layer of cardboard to the back. This one has been done for a few days and is holding up really nicely.
I also wanted to try a board with 3 pockets on it. No corkboard to deal with – just 2 layers of cardboard on the inside.
This one was a bit more challenging, but seems pretty sturdy. I think I’d like to change the depth of the pockets, and maybe sew up the middle to make two pockets on top level. I still have the problem of how to close everything up. For this one, I sewed through the cardboard. There must be a better way to do it that I just can’t wrap my brain around. When I made the flap of fabric above the cardboard, it wrinkled under the pull of the weight of the board. Any suggestions?
And have I mentioned lately how much I LOVE teaching the kids Kindergarten? Don’t get me wrong – there’s work involved and the time commitment is increasing as I they can do more, but I love having them home and watching them get excited about what they’re learning. This week we are looking at the letter C, cows, dairy products, and how God’s Word helps us grow spiritually, just like milk helps their bodies grow physically. Today, we made BUTTER!
I’m such a city girl – who knew we could make butter at home? Everyone took turns shaking up the whipping cream – mmmmm.
