A friend in Arizona asked me to make a wall hanging for her newest nephew and God Child.. I decided to make a Growth Chart and personalize it.
This is what I came up with...
Those are big giant green buttons sewn on the tree.
I added the parents initials to the tree trunk..
And hand stitched the numbers...
And added baby's name on one cloud. The other has his birthdate and weight. Should have gotten a picture of that.
And I should have cut more of the stabilizer away... didn't notice until it was too late.
She also has 2 other God Children.. Maddie and Micah. I made them pillowcases and added their names to the sleeve.
Then for fun, because Micah and Maddie are both under 6yrs old.. I made them crayon coloring bags.
It's been a long time since I've made these. I forgot what a great gift they are for kids. And so simple to make. You add crayons and a coloring book inside and away they go!!
I have been sewing a lot lately. I worked on these last FNSI.. but never shared. They weren't finished until the other night. And now they are all in a box on their way to Arizona.
I hope everyone loves their gifts!
