This weekend we worked on some gifts for the grandparents. In April, Lilly invited my Mom and I to her K.I.S.S. Day (Kids Invite Someone Special) to school. She made us this really cute card but it was one card for both my Mom and I, so I decided to turn it into a gift for my Mom. I keep seeing popping up in my pinterest stream – turn your kids artwork into stuffed animal or turn your kids artwork into a tea towel. So for a gift from Lilly she created several tea towels for the grandparents. Here’s where I saw the idea for the tea towels – Heather over at Setting for Four has some really cute examples – check it out here
This is the towel I created from the card Lilly made for K.I.S.S. Day
Step 1: Draw your picture on paper and then insert under the towel and trace your picture. I let her make a few of her own and she wanted to use the color markers.
I love how she signed each towel ♥
Grandma and Grandpa live up at the lake so this is a picture of Lilly and Grandma at the lake
towel she made for my Mom – a little bit of everything
Special Instructions – I washed my towels first and ironed them before we started tracing the pictures onto the towels. After, she traced and colored her drawings on the towels – I washed and ironed the towels again. This was just make sure everything was set before we wrapped up the towels.
I hope everyone enjoyed their Mother’s Day and was able to spend the day with the people that matter most! We had a busy day and I was treated to breakfast and went to dinner …. finished some chores ( a Mother’s job is never done) hehe!
Happy Mother’s Day!
