My Curious Miss is in her first year of big school this year! I’m still not quite sure how that happened.
Her preschool teachers are two very special ladies. They taught Little Boy two years prior, and there were around 14 children in the class whose older siblings were in Little Boy’s year. This called for a super special Christmas gift for them considering we’ve now known them for three years.
I enlisted the help of the other preschool teacher to trace each child’s hand print onto paper and also to tell me their favourite colour. From there I traced the hand prints on to Vliesofix and then onto fabric in their favourite colour. Once affixed to the blocks, each child signed their block with a Pigma pen.
I quilted each of the blocks using quilt as you go and then joined them using bias strips on the back. I added some hippo fabric which I bought at Hobbysew and I think they look quite cute really.
What’s the favourite handmade gift you’ve given or received?
