Fabric collage and a new apron

Fabric Scrap Collage for Kids

I've been saving my fabric scraps this week. Today I let Maia and her friend Marlise collage with them. I set out the fabric, oil pastels, some glue, and cardstock.

The girls found the materials during a lull in their playtime and set to work without any direction. It was fun to watch them work.

Handmade Apron for Kids

On the Kids Clothes Week Challenge front my latest project is a cooking apron for Maia which I made using the Montessori child's apron tutorial from Sew Liberated.

This is a great kids' apron! There is no tying involved so a young child can put it on herself. The neck strap has elastic and just slips easily over the head. The waist strap attaches with velcro at the side. And the pattern is easy (I'm all about easy).

Okay, we're off to a kindergarten orientation. Hard to believe this kiddo is going to be in kindergarten this fall!

    Where will she be in school? I’m trying not to worry that Isaac will only be 5 for 1 week before he starts school. It’ll all be fine, I’m sure…ugh.

    I’ve already started a few more with extra fabric pieces I have left over from other projects. I’m trying some with different prints on the front and back and for the straps.

    I love this! I’ve been wanting to do more activities that celebrate fibers and quilting. This is perfect and so simple. Many thanks!!!!
