emerging from cubby 2 of the advent calendar...this is crumbs the gingerbread man...
on the daily ornament project, autumn was (as was i) so pleased with the results. we took on a watercolor painted garland. while she was only mildly interested in the painting, she thought the circle punching was hilarious...imagine circles flying every which way.
the steps are pretty simple:
1) watercolor a few 8 1/2 x 11 pages...add salt for interest
2) when dry, punch several shapes...we used 1" and 5/8" circles
3) take 2 circles and place the unpainted sides back-to-back so only color is showing...then start sewing a long continuous line of circles...put the kiddo in charge of the presser foot if you dare
