We made portrait bookmarks for Grampy's birthday. I had to wait until Grampy actually received them in order to post about them. I am absolutely loving them. They are so unique- what Grampy looks like in the boys' mind. And they are so easy to make. The boys drew a picture on cotton fabric, I embroidered and sewed it together with their choice of fabric.
Another wonderful idea from Soulemama. It is actually coming out in her new book, Handmade Home. She had posted it on the Mothering web site a few months ago but I couldn't get the link anymore.
Oh, and here's Grampy.
