We will crack open the cinnamon scented, glitter playdough (purchased from Kylie through Handmade Heaven) a bit later...
And because it's a bit chilly, we have the fire going and have let the dog inside to indulge in the warmth with us.
TO MAKE THE COLOURING BOOK:
Time: 20 mins including time for answering the question - 'What are you doing Mum'? over and over.
I googled Free Colouring Pages, chose a few images and printed them out.
Then I covered a manilla folder (tea cup fabric that I've been saving for just such a project). I sewed the fabric on in the same way you'd attach contact. I also folded the raw edges over on the inside (see top picture) twice just to make it neat and ironed it before sewing on the longest stitch my machine does.
I added some ribbon through the slits where the bendy tie thing would normally go on the inside to hold the pages in place and so we can keep adding to it. (Again, see top picture).
Must be time to get some more washing out of the machine. Why don't you visit Lou's to see what else is happenning today.
