Gifts from the Heart

I love making things with my hands. I find it so relaxing. Last year the kids helped me make my father-in-law's Father's Day gift. An Embroidered hands quilt (<-- click to see where I got the idea). What a great way to save the memory of my children's small hands. I have embroidered the hands for me as well, but have not turned it into a quilt yet. Soon. :)
Below is a child's apron. We have a birthday party for 2 sweet little girls that we are going to. My kids love aprons. We have given them as gifts before & everyone has loved them.
Since we had enough material left over, Faith helped me make bags for the apron and measuring spoons/cups to go into. Faith wanted a half apron for herself. The aprons turned out a little big, but that will just give them a longer time that they can wear them.

  1. very cute projects... You are giving motivations to start sewing again. My 10 year old daughter just asked me to teach her to sew with the machine today. We have an "appointment" to start next week.

    YOur kids with thank you for your creativity. My older kids loved crafts and we did them all the time.
