Things my mother made: part 1


My mom recently made a counting book for her new granddaughter. Each page has a challenging fastener to master as well - velcro, buttons, zips, laces.... should keep the little one busy for a while (once she gets over simply drooling on the book).

Old family photos printed onto fabric give some light relief from the complexities of arithmetic and hand-eye coordination.

The rest of the pages are here.

Creative talent obviously runs through the whole family!

How amazing! What a brilliant idea to print photos on fabric (drool-protected)

So cute!
I Think i'm going to do something like that to Nicole, she's 4 but she is not having fun with the couting thing, and i don't even want to go to the colors.
Congrats to your mother for this great idea.
