This is a class Korowai cloak we made using a cotton fabric. The stylised feather pattern was drawn onto the fabric and then each child decorated their feather using pastels. Once finished each piece was dyed using good old school dye. Each piece was then cut out, backed with iron on interfacing and edged on the sewing machine. Then using fabric glue each feather was then glued onto a larger piece of fabric and to finish off patterned ribbon was glued on to the top of the cloak.
