That time of the year again - Children in Need. Me and Lottie are attending a fundraising event tomorrow with members of our home education group, so we thought she could decorate one of her old t-shirts with fabric pens. We used a stencil for the spots and then I hand-wrote a poem, which Lottie wrote by herself, on the back. We will put this away in her memory box afterwards so she can look at it always.
Also in this post I wanted to share with you a couple of Christmas gifts I have made in secret for Lottie (so she wont be viewing this post!). The first gift is something I've seen all over the place this year and that is a 'Like' picture. So I sat in front of the PC and wrote Lottie's favourite things in life, printed it off, added a bit of glitter, painted a pine frame and then made a bead embellishment and added that to the front of the frame.
And added a label on the back.
This little cutie I saw in one of my magazines and decided to give it a go. It's the first time I've worked with felt and stitching, and I'm really pleased with it. I'm going to glue a little magnet on the back so she can put it on a magnet surface in her bedroom.
I just hope she likes them as much as me!!
