I know, I’ve been out again. We’ll just ignore that fact and carry on m’kay? Deal! Now, I’ve been told Christmas is approaching, and while I firmly think people are lying (really, isn’t it NEXT month? Please?) I figured I should probably start getting ready.
One of the hardest people for me to buy for are my parents. They’re in that stage of life where they either have or can buy immediately anything they want, so what could I do that has some meaning? Browsing around Pinterest one day I came across this pin:
My first thought was..that’s so cute, but I don’t do paint. Move on. But it stayed in my head for a few days. I was thinking “Gosh, that would be SUCH a cute gift for my parents with all the kids’ handprints!”. But again, I don’t do paint, but…I have tons of fabric, could I make it work? Here’s what I came up with:
I’m so happy with how it turned out, and I hope my parents love it too! I took pictures as I did it thinking I’d post a little tutorial if anyone was interested. This is something you can TOTALLY still whip up before Christmas, start to finish it probably took me 2 or 3 hours (not including interruptions of course).
Now, I just need a fairy to do the rest of my Christmas shopping for me. Is anyone else as far behind as I am?
