On Christmas Day, Santa has a big order to fill when it comes to stuffing 15 stockings at my house...well, 16 counting mine, which always seems to get chocolate-covered-cherries every year! This Christmas, I managed to add something handmade to most of the stockings. (Sorry, guys.)All of my grandchildren are quite the little artists, but three are particularly passionate. Artist's Rolls, to hold markers, crayons or pencils seemed the perfect stocking stuffer for them. Do you recognize that leftover Batman fabric from the twin quilts I was making this time last year? Now, Ollie and Ezzie have art rolls to match their quilts!
And, four year old Maelie, who is a flamingo fanatic, can look at her favorite pink bird every time she decides to draw one (which is often!).
She assures me that she loves me more than flamingos, though!
If you'd like to know how to create an artist's roll for a little person, or, perhaps, for yourself, (I think that I want one) I found this great tutorial at Ellison Lane.
Now, back to your regularly scheduled program!
Happy first weekend in 2014!
