Patchwork Patterns

15 minutes This should take about 15 mins

You will need:

  • A piece of coloured paper
  • Some scissors
  • A ruler
  • A pencil
  • A glue stick
  • 4 different types of coloured patterned paper

Remember to ask a Grown-up for help.

Part 1

Gather together all the things that you need to make the Patchwork Pattern. Take the piece of patterned paper and turn it over. Then take the ruler and lay it along the bottom edge of the paper. Using the pencil very carefully draw a line along the top of the ruler. This will give you a strip the same width as the ruler. Take the ruler again and sit it on top of the line that you've just drawn and again, do the same. Carry on drawing lines all the way to the top of the page. You then need to cut these strips out but be careful as scissors are sharp. Still using the pencil and ruler draw lines across the strips. These lines again need to be about as wide as your ruler. Carry on drawing lines all the way up the strip and then cut these squares out but be careful as scissors are sharp. Do the same on the other strips and the other pieces of coloured patterned paper.
