Patterns are all around us,
from color and designs that are repeated in a specific way, to
the chorus in a song, or even a pattern of light in a laser show.
Patterns also exist in numbers and letters, where a particular
sequence is followed. The next five projects look at developing
your own patterns by repeating a sequence of colors, shapes and
108-1 Block Puzzles:
Start with six blocks and six pictures, or six photos or six
colors; you'll end up with your own set of puzzle blocks to
put together over and over.
108-2 Chenille Weaving: Over and under is the basis of
this project. Using plastic canvas and chenille stems you will
create a checkerboard pattern without even using a needle! The
finished frame also has a wonderful texture.
108-3 Paint Roller Patterns: Decorate your own tote,
towel and shirt. Learn how to create a design with wood and
foam and then create a roller to make a continuous pattern.
108-4 Paper Plate Patterns: Paper and glue are all you
need to create patterned decorator plates. Learn the technique
and then create a color and design pattern from small squares.
108-5 Rainbow Box: Learn to create a repeating pattern
with color. You'll also try out measuring and creating a grid
to provide a sequence to your pattern.
108-6 Hands-On Project: Learn about the Pennsylvania
Vent Camp for kids that are ventilator dependant. Crafting is
a big part of the camps program.
