finally a proper creative post!

In the awesome book "The creative family" Amanda, the author, gave this cool tips on how to use your kids drawings for embroidery! Lovely idea, I think! So, as her grandmothers birthday is coming fast we made a little project together the other day. My daughter draw a picture on plain paper and then we transfered it to a pillow wrap. She had to sketch a little right on the cloth too. Then we used a sewing hoop and then she started sewing. It took a while and I did help out a little but we both love the end result! + we had so much fun during this project! Below you can see the process :)








We stayed home today, since the said daughter has had high fever the whole weekend and still had one today. She is chilling on the couch and in between fetching her what ever she need :) I had some time to scrap.









As we are home, we took advantage of that and took some fun photos :)
