Dyed with paper bags chopped up at random and placed face down all at once. Not much opportunity to plan. You get what you get type technque. Much more child friendly and much more me too. No room for agnonising. Think I would start with this technique which doesn't allow for failure and means all the kids will have success first time out. Could then guide the more able ones toward bonding fabrics while the others could play at stitching into their randon design. I see roses in this one. Golly gee gosh, Valentine's day is creeping up on me already!
