Beaux- quet ( craft project for kids)
I have been dying to do a blog…. And have so many ideas busting to be uploaded. But Christmas came sweeping in and we went away on holiday for almost a month and then school started….. And seven family birthdays in the last few weeks!
All a bit crazy. No time to blog!
Not to mention , my “baby” leaping into the world of BIG school.
Any mums out there shed a little tear??? I did.
So with my eldest daughter Eden ( turned 8 yesterday!), we did a little old fashioned stitching to decorate her chair bag.
What an absolute hit this sewing thing is. It’s a “new” form of craft without the mess of paint and glitter etc; and all threads can be vacuumed up easily at the end. And it’s so easy and effective.
Even 5 yr old Jessica is into it.
As you can see from the close up shot, the sewing is nothing too complex or ” crash hot!”. Gotta lower the bar when it comes to littlies stitching….. Just in and out, in and out through the layers of fabric.
Pinning stuff in place first helps alot.
Eden just got a new pet blue budgie. So hence, the blue bird theme and love hearts. She is in love with her new baby bird named Jewel.
She’s even been having budgie play dates with friends who bring their budgies to play.
Happy days…. Just had to post this shot on my blog. My girls with my new vintage tea cups and having afternoon tea together with the pet budgie, who is sitting on my fake birds tail in right of photo. Celebrating first day of big school. Whewwww. We made it.
Happy stitching, and promise it won’t be months till my next blog.
