This Scouts Fleur de lis - Sewing Project was constructed as part of the "Handycraft" Level 2 Badges for Cubs Scouts Australia by my son.  Working with a large needle and wool help develop his fine motor skills for sewing. The crochet ring help, by holding the fabric reduces the effort to manage the fabric whilst learning the art of sewing.
