Grace and Noah started their Christmas projects a while ago and I took a day off to spend with them so we’d have time to finish them up.
I took both of them shopping for fabric at Noah’s request. Making something for Christmas presents seemed to be a good reason. Our shopping adventure is captured here.
Noah was very deliberate in his choice of fabrics and designs.
Since he has stated he will leave the quilting to Grace, I thought pillows would be a good and quick project for him.
Noah is a true animal lover and he wanted to include them in his projects. Elephants for his mom and penguins for dad. I found pictures online for him to color.
This Clover Stitch Guide worked wonders for helping Noah get good seams.
A kid-sized iron and table for pressing.
Mom’s pillow. He thought the fabric looked like it belonged to an elephant.
Dad’s pillow. Owls are birds and so are penguins, hence the fabric choice.
Fabric backs were chosen because they had black and white in them.
He did an outstanding job and focused well so we could finish them up in time.
Proud of you Noah. Love Grandma
