I originally designed this project when my DD was in kindergarten. Now, she taught this to her K-1 class! I made this hot pad out of wooly fabric and brown canvas. They printed their handprint in brown paint, added details, and TaaDaa! A Darling Turkey HotPad for Thanksgiving! The special secret is to add cinnamon, spice & herbs inside before sewing it closed so it add a delightful aroma when it holds a hot dish!
Fun memory...when I did these in kindergarten for my DD, I looked around the room after we finished and was shocked that every child had a brown smudge on their face! I realized they had been sitting there smelling the hotpad until the cinnamon had dusted through and covered their faces! Precious!
We made this pretty Pumpkin necklace with original artwork, beads and glass marbles!
So pretty for Fall, Thanksgiving, and cool weather dressing. The art was drawn on old pages of a thrift store book. The wool backing was from a felted sweater. Sweet!
