Our day began with "three stegosaurus feet and a fiery ball from above" and ended with some new placemats for the kids.
I've been wanting to do this project forever (do I say that about every new project I do?) and glad I finally bought the supplies as I think the fabric markers will be our new best friend, although Esme's enthusiasm over being able to color on fabric scares me a bit.
We started the drawings this morning and I just finished up the sewing after the kids went to bed. They picked the fabric themselves and I didn't think much about their choices -- just slapped them together keeping in mind that these will be stained in ketchup and God-knows-what before tomorrow is over -- until I just now noticed that Esme chose scraps mostly from quilts and other projects that I've made for her.
Aww, a sappy little sentimentalist in the making...not sure where she gets that, [ahem].
