We did a few gifts that we couldn't show earlier! BJ did some of his own fabric drawing. That was good fun! He went into quite some detail with his drawings. I got him to put his name on them too. I also dated them. I must admit I stole the idea from Sally when her kids did the aprons. I had to come up with something we could do too! What a fabulous idea! Thanks Sally!
This was drawing day. (I interrupted his lego play to do the drawings!)
I turned them into oven mitts! I was excited as once again I could use up a bit of fabric in the cupboard! Was very cool. He had fun doing this & he was excited to give them to the grandmothers & honorary Aunt on Christmas Day. He told them all they were so they didn't burn their hands when they were cooking. But I didn't really pad them up much so they are really only for warm things! That's just the way I made them. Using cotton wadding off cuts as well as fabric! Yay! I just had to buy a little bit more to get enough fabric for bias cutting the bindings.
I need to do another one now. For me! Silly me didn't do one for myself at the same time! DOH! I definitely need one of these for posterity.
I actually think these are a great idea! I think every kid should make something like this! They are great for mums & grandmothers for Mother's Day! I will have to think about what else we can make!
Have a good day! Back to work for a rest for me!
