Earlier in the week, we did simple sewing lessons. First I let each of them make their own pillow slipcover. Measure pillow. Get double that length of material. Hem, sew ends together. Slip it over the pillow and you have yourself a new look. Plus you can make seasonal ones, or layer them. I add pockets to mine to store toys. Or the remote control, so it's not always lost between cushions.The artist chose a beautiful pink print that my uncle had sent.
You can see that Dash got distracted with the picture taking, and started making faces instead of paying attention to directions. ;-)
Then my artist made herself a cowboy print waist apron. YAY!!
Then we did simple lid magnets with some of our extra pictures.
and one of me holding my artist baby.
Pictures of the BIG project tomorrow!!
