I wish this was mine.
But like many of my kids' creative projects, they are made for their friends. (I'm happy this one was for a little friend named Will who just turned four.)
Johanna loves being by my side. For a little while, at least. "Mommy, I want to help!" is her phrase.
She did the art with fabric markers and ironed (with me)...
And helped with the sewing machine foot. And pressed again with the Heat and Bond to join the two pieces of fabric...
Got a little distracted and changed her whole outfit for the occasion.
(Here is a perfect example of imperfection from yesterday... the basement. What happens in the basement stays in the basement.)
I have visions of everyone having their own for this spring as a nature field journal. I can see the twins getting into the fabric-marker-thing.
P.S. I have quite the surprise for you tomorrow. The children of Ishinomaki, Japan sent me something for you...
