“This book is a great way to integrate hands-on learning activities into the classroom using everyday materials. All fourth-grade classrooms should have this book.”
Florida Seminoles and Miccosukees have been making and wearing patchwork clothing since the early 1900s, creating many beautiful and unique patchwork designs. They also make palmetto-husk dolls, dressed in patchwork clothing. Patchwork is a way for these Native Americans to express themselves and identify with their heritage. This book combines the history of the Seminoles and Miccosukees with how they do their crafts. Learn how to make patchwork designs and a doll using colored paper and glue instead of fabric and a sewing machine with easy step-by-step instructions.
