Year 7 Eco Cushions - Llantwit Major School

Report
Year 7 Design and Technology
‘60 Minute Make Over’ and ‘DIY SOS’ are
popular T.V. programmes where the planning
of colour schemes often plays an important
part and must appeal to a target market.
These T.V. programmes often use a
particular/popular theme as a starting point
for designs of items used to decorate the
rooms.
We are becoming increasingly aware of the
effects we are having on our planet with
more designers creating items which are
friendlier towards the environment.
Considering the theme hobbies and
interests design and make a cushion using
some use of recycled materials. Using a
range of decorative techniques show
creative use of colour using one of the
colour schemes Contrast/Harmonious or
Primary
• Why am I doing this project?
• You will develop new skills – using a sewing
machine, threading a needle, cutting fabrics,
etc.
• You will learn decorative textile techniques –
stencilling, sponging.
• You will learn how to research and find
information and how this could affect your
decisions when developing your design.
• You will investigate new materials, where
they come from, how they are made, their
properties; enabling you to make informed
decisions on which are the most suitable for
your project.
• You will have the freedom to develop your
ideas and discuss, with others, how
improvements could be made.
Use a ruler to draw
straight lines.
Draw with a sharp pencil.
Use coloured pencils to
show colour scheme.
Annotate with pencil
arrows drawn with a ruler.
Use a pen when writing.
Use space available to draw your designs so
they are clear.
This will help you to understand:• How a cushion is made
• Who it is made for
• What materials it is made from
• How it is decorated
This is called ‘evaluating existing
products’.
Evaluation of existing productsCushions

Independent research
Find images of different hobbies and
interests that you have. Look in magazines,
newspapers, internet etc. You can also include
colours you want to use in order to show the
type of cushion design that you would like to
make.
Use them to create a mood board on A4 paper
for your cushion design
In groups discuss the
different themes and
moods of the three
boards below.
• Primary colours
• Secondary colours
• Harmonious colours
• Warm colours
• Cool colours
• Calming colours
Angry

their cushion?
• Is the cushion for a
specific time of year
(seasonal) e.g Christmas,
or will it be used all the
time?
• What mood or feeling
do you want to create?
• For my cushion I want to use a
__________(state harmonious or contrasting)
colour-scheme because_____(think about
your target user, or where your cushion will be used
• I have chosen to include____(state which
colours)_______ because ____ (think about the
meaning of the colour)
• What have you learnt
today & how will you
be using this to help
you with your work?
• How will you be able
to use this knowledge
in another lesson?
• Do you know what you
need to do next for
this project?
Write a sentence for each of the
following to begin to write a design
specification:• Deadline
• Target user
• Function
• Materials and components
• Deadline: My cushion must be completed by ……….
• Materials and components: I will use cotton fabric
and thread to make my cushion. I will also use fabric
paints and crayons to apply my design to the cushion.
• Function: My cushion needs to be comfortable,
attractive, appealing, using recycled materials….
• Target user: The cushion will be made to appeal to a

• Cost:
• Safety:
• Equipment:
Look at the work of the person next to you,
She/he should have written:•
•
•
•
A design brief
A Mood Board
An analysis or mind map
A design specification
Has he/she done what they have been asked to
do?
Consider the following:
• Is the work so far neat and easy to read?
• When you read the design specifications,
do you understand what the item that is
going to be made will be like?
• How do you think that he/she could
improve?
Learning Outcomes

Recycling Facts
Textiles make up 12% of landfill sites
Britain produces around 650,000 tonnes of
textile waste a year
Only a quarter of this is recycled by charities,
clothes banks and jumble sales
It's no secret that recycling is important for the environment. Millions
of people dutifully separate their plastics, aluminium, and paper waste
so that those items can be reused and help decrease the amount of
garbage in landfills. But many people aren't aware that the denim,
cotton, corduroy, wool, and linen that they outgrow and toss into the
trash should also be reused.
Looking at textile recycling facts as a whole, the recovery of used
clothing is not only good for the environment, it is an action that
has an impact on a financial and charitable level in your local
community and around the world. The item recovered today can be
the paper good utilized tomorrow, and it is one less item filling up
overflowing landfills.
Remember the back panel of the cushion
will be made from recycled material.
Ask at home if there are any old sheets,
clothes, curtains, cushions to be
recycled so that we can complete our
eco cushions.
