I have some special crafters in my life: Helena my granddaughter, Katie next door and Natalie, Katie's longtime friend. This week I've been thinking about crafts we can do with kids in October for a craft fair. I'd like the kids to make presents for their parents for a minimal fee which we would donate to a worthy group. It's a two-fer present--one for the community and the other for the kids. So Katie and Natalie graciously agreed to do some samples for me. This was originally going to be a wallhanging but they decided to do pillows.
I also wanted to see how well the fabric markers work. I'm delighted with the results! This was Katie's:
I did have photographs of the girls holding their projects but when I tried to rotate the photographs of them, the photos disappeared forever (another technical malfunction here). I just love the drawings kids do and am especially enamored with Katie's chick so I have decided to nickname my girls the Chick-A-Dee Crafters. I'm hoping to get more examples done sometime this summer (mother's health permitting) and really do this in October.
