Reflect – to give evidence of other individuals’ or groups’ opinions or views on the final product. Study – to analyse and evaluate information and ideas. Test – a process to ensure that standards are met. Evaluation should be carried out throughout your project/design folder.

Any improvements you make should be creative and refer to innovation, environmental and sustainability issues. 56 Activity Take a photograph of a textile product you have designed and made and an existing product used for the same purpose.
