Year 9 Textile Doorstops

At the end of the Summer Term, pupils in Year 9 made textile doorstops in Design & Technology. Max made a turtle doorstop using his own paper pattern. He trialled the pattern in fabric and then modified it to achieve a more realistic shape. He created the shell using free machine embroidery. Armanis created a house doorstop. Mrs Cooper Cassady assisted in constructing the shape but he did all the applique himself!

Can you guess what we used to fill the doorstops to make them heavy?
