If you haven’t picked up on it yet I have two daughters. There’s endless reasons to have arts and crafts out. They’re so creative that I don’t even have to suggest a project. Usually they’ve got the recycle bin out, scissors in one hand and paper in the other, crayons and pens scattered all over the table. A sticker is never far.
They love to paint too. Because of this I started experimenting with paint…and little girls hand prints. In a previous post I shared a box with a strawberry made out a hand print. Here’s another hand print project.
The sad thing is, you can’t see the quilting very well. I used Cindy’s Circle Template from Longarm University (I’ll put a link to the right) to make bubbles in the white and large circle templates for large bubbles where the kids pictures are in the border. Okay…for the cute animals:
Isn’t that adoreable? Okay…here’s another…
Here’s a starfish…
And, finally…a crab…
Please don’t think I’m clever enough to come up with it on my own. Oh, no…I got it out of a book called Calendar Kids: Handprint Quilts Throughout the Year by Marcia Layton. Let’s see if I can get the picture to copy over…okay…it ended up at the top of the post! Well, aren’t I clever?
I also had my darlings do green handprints and then made Christmas trees. Bordered the print with Christmas fabric, micro-stippled around the trees. It’s adorable…can I find a picture for you? No! Oh well, maybe next time!
Dinner’s ready. Leftovers. Not that much fun but at least the fridge will be a little emptier.
Have a lovely evening!
