Crazy Quilt Hearts

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and I want to have a small heart quilt to display on my front porch to wish everyone who drives by a LOVELY 💕 holiday! As I started planning, my creative juices went crazy in all different directions. Then I thought, “Since I’m going crazy, why not a Crazy Quilt Heart quilt ?”!

I went to my fabric closet and took out this jelly roll called “Kissing Booth” that I bought on sale a few years back. PERFECT!

………………I took out different complimentary whites, but decided on just the plain white. I'm glad I did:). I sewed and cut and ended up with a Victorian romantic style heart that I absolutely LOVE ❤️💕

I had fun using those rarely used decorative stitches on my machine too!

Would you like to make a Crazy Quilt Heart? It’s easy! Here’s how:

Fabric:One jelly roll

  • Light and dark Complimentary background fabric.
  • Fusible interfacing

  • Sew four sets of three strips together.
  • Cut them into crazy, wonky pieces.

So far so easy, right? Now the next part may seem a bit tricky, but don’t fuss or worry. It’s your sewing room and there are no rules in Crazy quilting so relax and just go with it:)

  • Grab two of the pieces you just cut, pick different shaped ones, and sew them back together at odd angles. Don’t worry about the tops and bottoms matching. Just sew.
  • Press the open
  • Sew these odd sized pieces together. You may need to straighten a side or two as you go, but no worries.
  • Cut and sew, press, cut, and sew!

You will end up with a large piece of Crazy fabric that looks like this–

SWEET!!! Now it is time to make our hearts.

  • Out of paper, draw and cut out two different sized hearts. Cut one 5.5″ heart and one 4.5″ Heart. They don’t have to be exactly those sizes, just cut them close.

  • Trace the hearts onto the non-sticky side of your fusible interfacing. I drew 31 small and 31 large
  • Cut these out making sure to leave at least 1/4″ all around the marking.

  • Place your small interfacing heart onto your crazy fabric with the sticky side touching the right side of the fabric.
  • Sew on the line
  • Cut the heart out with a 1/4″ seam allowance
  • Clip at the top of the heart in the center making sure not to clip the sewing thread
  • Clip an opening in the back interfacing
  • Carefully turn the heart inside out.
  • Done! Now repeat this with the large hearts and the dark complimentary fabric.
  • Cut your white fabric into 6.5″ squares
  • Press your dark hearts to the center of the white fabric
  • Press the small hearts to the center of the dark hearts. So pretty!!

Now it is time for the really fun part!

  • Using the decorative stitches on your sewing machine, sew over the seams of your crazy quilt heart
  • Use a button hole stitch to sew around the edges of the heart.

Finished! I am so happy with how they turned out:)❤️❤️❤️

I am using the rest of my jelly roll to make a bunch of nine patch squares as well so I can have a whole Valentines Day quilt

I’m excited to get it all sewn together and quilted to show you next week. Yea!!!

I am really so glad you stopped by today. I hope you have a LOVE-ly rest of your Day!

Why You Need a Portable Design Board and How to Make One!

It is Scrap Happy Time and I have just the project for you!

Moving cut scraps from the cutting board to the sewing table can be a bit tricky. The pieces can shift and move or even fall to the floor! I like to place my pieces on a fabric covered board as I cut and design my block.

The batting makes it so I can design my block and move it with ease. How cool is that?!

I have been using my old design boards for over five years and they are still going strong. They have quite a few strings attached, but that just shows that they are well used and well loved.

A reader of mine asked me about them a day or so ago and I thought that maybe a few more of you might be interested in learning how to make one or two of these fantastic boards for yourself. Plus, I was just thinking I could use a few more boards. They are so quick and easy!

The items needed are probably all just lying around your house anyway, so why don’t you gather them up and let’s get started? 🙂

  • A large cardboard box
  • Scraps of leftover fabric and batting
  • A marker
  • A razor blade
  • Clear packing tape
  • Spray glue

Now that’s not much, is it? This is going to be EASY!

  • First choose a box with a piece that is large enough to cut a square from.
  • Mark the size of square you would like. I cut two. One is 12.5″ and the smaller one is 7.5
  • With a ruler and a razor blade, cut your squares out
  • Next we will be using the packing tape

  • Cover one entire side of the square with packing tape. This is so you can layer them on top of each other without the fabric sticking to the cardboard back of the board above.

  • Now we are going to be using our scraps of batting and spray glue.
  • Cut your batting the size of your boards
  • Lay a piece of scrap paper down to cover your work area
  • Spray the non shiny side of your board with glue

  • place your batting on top of the glue on the board

They will look like this. Now it is time to make some binding from your fabric scraps

  • Cut 2″ strips the width of the fabric.

  • Sew the strips together by placing the fabric together as shown above and sewing from corner to corner.

  • Fold the edges to meet in the middle and press.

  • Fold the strip in half and press to make binding.

Next we are going to be sewing the binding to the boards. You will be sewing through the cardboard. Don’t worry, it will work! 🙂

  • Set your machine to a wide zig zag stitch and starting in the middle of one side, fold the fabric over the board. Stitch through the fabric and board. If the left side of your stitch is at the edge of your binding, it should easily catch the back of the binding as well.
  • Stitch just to the edge of the board. Back stitch and cut your thread
  • Pictures 3 and 4 go together. Lift the board and pull the fabric down on the next side making a miter. You may want to add a drop of glue to hold the corner in place. I just held mine. Sew the next side down . Repeat for all four sides.

  • When you come to the end, cut the binding about 1.5″ over the starting point. Fold the binding back on itself and stitch to the end.

Yea! You are finished! Don’t they look great?!

I can’t wait to use them with my next Delilah project. There are always so many pieces to cut and carry!

And how do I store all of these boards? I have a fun Totally Tipster tip for you today as well. SWEET!

I have a letter holder next to my wall that holds my favorite rulers and these boards.

It takes very little space and they are all ready to be used at any time. I just love multipurpose objects!

I hope you will make a few of these boards for yourself. I would love to hear about it if you do:)

Until tomorrow!

A Hooded Towel for Christmas!

It has finally come, that time to put away the other projects and focus on my Christmas sewing. Yea! I love Christmas!

When my oldest son was born, a beautiful lady from my church made a hooded towel for him. That towel was WONDERFUL! It was large enough to wrap him up in and absorbent enough to really get him dry. I just LOVED it!

As I was thinking about gifts for my grandsons this year, I knew that I wanted to make a large, soft, hooded towel for them too. I wish I had kept that old towel to use as a pattern, but it has been long, long gone. I searched the internet and Pinterest for patterns that were similar or that I liked, but I couldn’t find one that gave clear enough instructions. So… to make this long story short — I just designed my own!

The pattern is EASY!! And the tutorial makes sewing the towel a breeze :). If you have any babies or toddlers on your Christmas list, you might want to try your hand at sewing them a Hooded Towel. 🙂

Supply List:

  • One Bath Towel
  • One Hand Towel
  • Matching Thread


  • If you want to add embroidery or ribbon or appliqué etc., add it to your hand towel first. Make sure that the embellishments are between 6” – 9” from the bottom of the towel. You can add bows and buttons or more after the towel is sewn.

  • With the right side of the towel facing down, fold the bottom of the towel up about 5”. If you are adding embellishments, Check to make sure that the fold covers the whole thing. If not, make the fold larger.
  • On the front of the towel, sew a top stitch close to the fold.
  • On the back of the towel, sew the top of the folded flap down.

The front will now look like this.

  • With the right side facing up, fold the edge you just sewed back on itself 6.5”
  • Sew these sides closed

  • Find the center of the towel on the fold and place a pin there.
  • With a ruler, place the 3’ mark at the pin and mark 3” on either side with a pin.

  • Sew from the pin to the end of the flipped edge.Back stitch and secure this edge quite a bit. I have marked in chalk your sewing line from the pin to the end of the flipped edge. You do not need to mark your towel

  • Cut the corners of folded edge next to the angled stitching.
  • Cut the free edge of the towel 3” from the fold as in the above picture.

This next step is the only somewhat tricky part, but it really just feels a bit awkward. It’s not hard. You can do it!:)

  • Mark the center of the folded, top of the hood with a pin.
  • Fold the back of the towel lengthwise starting at the pin. Fold the hood evenly in half lengthwise pinning as needed.
  • Sew from the top pin down to the bottom about 1” over. I have marked in chalk your sewing line

You will have a hood with a dart on the back when you are done . Yea! You did it:)

  • Finish all of your cut edges with a serger or with a zig zag stitch.

  • Sew the side wings down that are barely below the hood

  • Find the center of the long or wide side of your towel.
  • Pin the hood to the towel
  • Sew the hood down making sure to really back stitch and the beginning and end for added strength. You may even want to sew this seam twice.

Oh my goodness! You are done! Isn’t it the cutest thing?

And since I blog about my creative journeys, there are rarely any real homemade surprises under our Christmas tree. I figure it gives added anticipation. Lol:)! Here are the three towels that I made. After the initial embroidery, which took forever, these towels whipped up in no time!

And of course I had to grab my SWEET grandson and take quick photo to show you how truly adorable this towel really is! Just look how snuggly he is:).

I will not be posting the rest of the week due to the Thanksgiving holiday. I hope those of you in the States have a wonderful holiday filled with family and delicious food. I am Thankful for all of you, my online friends.

“Tying” Up a Scrappy Quilt

Good Morning to you!  It is Scrap Happy time again:).  I always look forward to linking up with Kate over at Tall Tales from Chiconia each month.  

This month’s project is one that I actually feel guilty about.  My sister-in-law’s father passed away back in 2015.  She gave me his ties and asked if I could make a quilt from them for her.

I carefully deconstructed them,  lightly pressed them and placed them in a box to work on after Christmas presents and wedding preparations, and then more quilts, and then they just kind of got forgotten.  I feel so bad!

I was cleaning through things and looked in the box,  and uh oh! I knew that now was the time.  No more waiting for this one!

  • I took the piles of deconstructed ties and cut them into  1.5″ to 2.5″ strips.  I didn’t care how many.  I just cut until I had cut the whole tie.
  • I cut 30 – 8.5″ Scrap fabric from some of my sub quality fabrics.  They really do make great stabilizers!
  • I started sewing strips from the center corner out on both sides.   I didn’t care at all about what width of strip I was using. 

  • When I was finished sewing strips to a block, the whole base was covered as in the top left photo.
  • I turned the block over and trimmed the block nice and square.
  • I then sewed around the edges to keep the ties from shifting.

Here is a picture of my neatly stacked blocks.  Aren’t they pretty?

  • Next I cut 36- 2.5″x8.5″ strips from a complimentary brown fabric (manly of course!) 
  • Then I laid out my blocks going in opposite directions.  A beautiful diamond design magically appeared!
  • I labeled each row with tape to make sewing the rows easier.   I could easily take them all piled together by row to my sewing machine and not get mixed up as I sewed along:)
  • I measured the length of the strips and cut 7 more 2.5″ strips that length and sewed the quilt together.

Here it is all pieced and ready for quilting.

While it looks nice before quilting, it looks especially fantastic after quilting!

The added texture and binding really help to “tie” it all together.  Lol:)!

I backed this quilt with an olive green plaid flannel.   I was surprised with how much I liked it:)

Now it is time to fold it up and get it to my sister-in-law, FINALLY!  I know she is going to be overjoyed❤️

Thank you for dropping by today.  I hope you have SWEET, Scrap Happy day!

Want To Match Up Prints?

Working with checks or large patterns can be  tricky when sewing large pieces together.  Many people like to use checks on the back of quilts, but if you don’t plan ahead, you will end up with something that looks like this:

With a little bit of planning, you will never have this happen to you!  It’s easy!  Here is how:

  • Press the edge of one of your fabric pieces along the edge you want to sew. 

  • Grab your trusty School Glue and place a small line of glue along the edge of the other piece of fabric 

  • Match your folded fabric pattern to the glued fabric.  Don’t worry about matching bottom or side edges.  Just match the pattern.  Press and repeat across the length of your fabric.

  • Take your glued fabric to your sewing machine and sew on the folded line.

Done!  How easy is that?  SWEET❤️!

I hope you will give this technique a try the next time you need to match up a print on your sewing adventures.

Until next time!

By Jove, I Think She’s Got it!

Appliqué has been my quilting nemesis for years.  My stitches always show and the thread really tends to stand out.  

Because I have been so frustrated, and not very patient, I usually just opt to embrace the visible stitches and use my sewing machine with either a small hem stitch or go all out and use a buttonhole stitch with contrasting thread.

I am not at all against machine appliqué, in fact I am a big fan of the speed and consistency of the stitches.  BUT  (I’m sure you knew that was coming) I really WANT to be proficient at appliqué.  I feel that any really good quilter should know how to needle turn.

Well this is it.  This is the quilt where I learn the appliqué ways!  I started out with my usual try to take a small stitch, but the stitches still show technique.   Ugh!  No matter how hard I tried, those stitches showed!

Then I looked at the back and had a brilliant thought—

I said to my myself, ” look at those tiny pinpricks. Why can’t they be on the front?”   Wait a minute–why can’t they?  I know, I know, I’m very slow to the rodeo with this one!   I think everyone else had this figured out long ago.  Where have I been?!

This time I entered my quilt top completely next to where I came out on the last stitch. Do you see where I put the arrow in the above picture?

Here it is again.  The picture on the left shows what I WAS doing. I was entering the fabric a few stitches ABOVE where I came out on the last stitch.  The totally correct awesome way is once again to go back down RIGHT NEXT to where I came out of the fabric on the last stitch.

Look at how pretty that looks!  You can BARELY see the stitches at all!❤️❤️. The back has the long stitches and I’m ok with that:)

I should be quite the proficient when I am done with this Down the Rabbit Hole quilt.  In fact for the next few days I am really going to be stitching and stitching on these leaves!  There are about 50 of them!

Yep,  I think I will have the hang of it for sure by the time I’m done with them:)

Now I have to get the curves a little smoother, but I will get there!  No one is going to be looking that close except me and you:)!

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope my appliqué journey helps any of you who are new to appliqué:)

Life is SWEET!

Down the Rabbit Hole Appliqué Preparation 

Good Morning!  Im glad to be home and back to some bit of normalcy.  The best part of being home is spending a bit of time in my sewing room.   I have been loving some of the fun techniques I am learning in my Down the Rabbit Hole Quilt by Sarah Fielke

I need to be more careful about second guessing how to do things on this quilt.  For instance, I used my normal sew around the circle with fusible web technique.  It is a very good way to make a fusible circle that can be found here.  But I will show you in a minute that should have waited.

Dont they look pretty?

I gathered my 1/4″ bias tape that I made last time I posted about this quilt.  I put a few drops of glue on the back and glued it down around my psychedelic Rabbit Hole. 

Then I ironed my beautiful circles down .  I LOVE it! –But there was an even easier way to make perfect circles.

In section 3 of Sarah’s directions, she introduced me to a new way to make circles for applique.  I know the “Magic Circle” for Crochet. Now I know a magic circle technique for quilting too!❤️❤️

  • First, I gathered my perfect circles templates and took out the circles that were the right size for the pattern. But really a piece of cardboard cut into a circle would work as well.
  • Then I took out my kitchen aluminum foil and cut some squares that were bigger than the circles I was making.  
  • I cut my fabric into circles that were 1/4″ larger than my template circle, but next time I am going to cut them 1/2″ larger for added adjustment.

  • I followed Sarah’s instructions and placed the foil down first, then the fabric with the right side down, followed by the template
  • It was easy to then fold the foil and fabric over the template to make these little foil circles
  • I took the circles to my ironing board and pressed them with my iron.  The foil was very hot so I waited a bit to let them cool:)
  • When I opened my little foil package, there was my pretty little ironed circle!  Easy, easy, easy!!

Can you see why I wish I would have waited on my larger circles?   The interface method worked, but this way was even faster and easier!  

I am so excited to start my hand appliqué.  I  am always tempted to use my machine, but I really WANT to become a proficient hand appliquer.  I will never get there unless I keep trying.

So—Here I go Down the Rabbit Hole!  

Thank you for dropping by and reading about my creative adventures.  I hope you have a SWEET day:)

Granny Star Potholders Pattern and Tutorial

I love buying yarn and fabric on a trip and then coming home and stitching  something up to always remind me of the fun times we had on our adventures.  Maybe you do too!

I bought this bright and crazy “Hippie” yarn at Mendels on Haight Street in San Francisco.  I love the groovy colors!   For my memory project,  I designed a set of  easy, fun potholders.   Here is the pattern if you would like to stitch up a set of your own .

Granny Square PotholdersPattern designed by Tracy @It’s a T-Sweets Day!

Materials Needed:

  • 2 skeins of worsted weight coordinating yarn  (cotton makes the best yarn for Potholders, but I don’t mind a some what toasted yarn pot holder, so I am using acrylic)
  • Size G or 4.5mm hook
  • Large eyed yarn needle
  • Scissors 
  • 8 stitch markers 

These instructions have you change colors at the end of  Round 4 but you can change the colors on as many rounds as you like. Just use the same technique 


Make two squares for each pot holder.

Start by making a magic circle.

Round 1 – Working in magic circle, Ch 3, counts as first dc, 2 dc, ch 2, *3 dc, ch2, repeat from* 2 more times, close your magic circle, join with a sl stitch to the 3rd chain of the beg. Ch3. 

  You now have 4 cluster stitches and 4 ch2 corners.

Round 2 – Ch3, counts as first dc, dc in next 2 st, (2dc, ch2, 2dc) in corner ch 2 sp, 

*dc in next 3 st, (2dc, ch2, 2dc) in corner ch2 sp, repeat from * 2 more times, join with a sl st to the 3rd ch of the beg. ch3.  You now have 7dc on each side

Round 3 – Ch3, dc in next 4st, (2dc, ch2, 2dc) in corner ch 2 sp, *dc in next 7st, (2dc, ch2, 2dc) in corner ch 2 sp, repeat from * 2 more times, dc in next 2st, join with a sl st to the 3rd ch of the beg. ch3. You now have 11dc on each side

Round 4 – Ch3, dc in next 6st, (2dc, ch2, 2dc) in corner ch 2 sp, *dc in next 11st, (2dc, ch2, 2dc) in corner ch 2 sp, repeat from * 2 more times, dc in next 4st, Change color– to change color, cut the main color leaving a 6″ tail, insert your hook into the the 3rd ch of the beg ch3, pull the new color through and PUL the hanging yarns tight on the back (You now have 15dc on each side)

Round 5- Ch3, dc in next 8st, (2dc, ch2, 2dc) in corner ch 2 sp, *dc in next 15st, (2dc, ch2, 2dc) in corner ch 2 sp, repeat from * 2 more times, dc in next 6st, join with a sl st to the 3rd ch of the beg. ch3. (You now have 19dc on each side)

Round 6– Ch3, dc in next 10st, (2dc, ch2, 2dc) in corner ch 2 sp, *dc in next 19st, (2dc, ch2, 2dc) in corner ch 2 sp, repeat from * 2 more times, dc in next 8st, join with a sl st to the 3rd ch of the beg. ch3, cut yarn leaving a 6″ tail and pull through to finish. (You should have 23dc on each side)

On the back side of the square, thread a yarn tail into a large eyed needle and weave the tail in by sewing up a few stitches and back down a few stitches two or three times. Cut the thread close to the square. Weave in all of the yarn tails.

Optional flower:  Make one for each pot holder

Round 1 – Make a magic circle. Ch 1, does not count as a st, 16sc in the circle, join to the first sc. Close the magic circle by pulling on the back thread.  

Round 2- ch6, counts as dc and 3ch, *sk next st, dc, ch3, repeat around., join with a sl sr to the 3rd ch of beg ch st. You will have 8 posts and 8 ch3 spaces.

Round 3- sl st into ch3 sp, ch1, *(sc, dc, 2trc, dc, sc) in ch 3 sp, sk next post dc st, repeat from * around. Join with a sl st and fasten off  leaving a 24″ tail. You will have 8 petals.  

Weave the magic circle tail thread into the back of the flower.

Thread the long 24″ tail thread onto your needle. Place your flower in the center of your granny square.  Sew a small st in the valley and the tip of each petal to attach the flower to the square. Weave the remaining thread into the back to finish off.
Constructing Your Pot Holder– 

Block your squares by pinning the squares the same size and steam with an iron. DO NOT PRESS OR TOUCH THE IRON TO THE YARN!   You want it to look fresh and pretty for gift giving or for a photo shoot:)

Put the put holders together with the back sides together. Place one square at a diagonal and the other straight like a square.–place a stitch marker in the 6th dc from the corner of each square and connect them in the “valley” of the star. Place a stitch marker in all of the valleys. There will be 8 markers holding your two blocks together.

–with the color of your choice, attach your yarn in any stitch marker stitch. Place your hook through both the top square and bottom square stitches and pull a loop through. Be sure to leave a 6″ tail on the back to weave in at the end.

–ch1, sc in the same valley st, *sc in next 5st, 3sc in the corner chain, sc in the marked stitch going through BOTH squares, sc in the next 5st of the BOTTOM square, 3sc in the corner chain sp, sc in next 5 st, sc in in the next marked st going through both squares, repeat from * around, join with a slip st to the beg sc and fasten off leaving a 6″ tail. Weave in your tails.

Finished!   Far out and Groovy!!  But if you use soft, light colors the words, Fresh and SWEET, might be more appropriate:)

Here are the fronts of my two pot holders.

And here are the backs.  I absolutely LOVE them!  I am sure I will get years of use out of them.  And each time I use them, I will have happy memories of my trip to San Francisco!

I hope you will give this pattern a try.  If you do, please let me know how it goes;).  Until next time!!

Scrap Happy Needle Case

Hello and Happy Tuesday!   Today is a fun day because it is Kate’s Scrap Happy round up day:).  For my Scrappy project I would like to share with you my beautiful  Scrap Happy needle case. 

I  am part of a shoebox swap Christmas gift exchange. I have been getting ready all year.   My swap friend said she needed a needle case.   Sew…I made her one!  Isn’t it cute?

For my inspiration I used a pattern from Nana Company that can be found here. I didn’t really follow her instructions as much as I just kind of looked at them for inspiration. It measures 7″x4″.

I sewed my tiny 1 1/2″  scraps to make the front.  I  drew a free hand Needles on it and stitched it using an easy back stitch with double the thread.

The back is just a single piece of fabric with quilting and a button closure:). But the really fun part is the inside.

I made a little pocket to hold scissors and needle threaders:).  The pages are made from a soft, yummy wool.

Each page has a bit of lace for embellishment.  Isn’t it pretty?  

I found this lace as I was rummaging through my ribbon and lace scrap drawer for embellishments.  I knew it would be perfect!

I cut around the flowers and then sprayed them on the back with Scotch permanent fabric adhesive.  I did this on top of a paper towel to keep my table clean.  Then I glued them to the wool page.  Easy!!

I just loved making this SWEET little needle case!  I think I might have to make another for me:)

I hope you have a Happy Scrappy Day!

Improve Your Coloring by Using Pastels

I had so much fun on my coloring retreat with my daughter.  We like to get together once a year just to create.  Sometimes we sew sometimes we make things for the children.

This year she wanted to make file folder activities that she could take to church or use for quiet time at home.  I was so glad:). We used a book that I made file folders for her when she was young!  

Here was our material list:

  • A Finch Family Fun Games file folder book. You can buy these on Amazon.
  • Pastels 
  • Colored Markers
  • Colored card stock 
  • Spray glue
  • Scissors
  • Sticky back magnet roll
  • Facial tissue and ear swabs
  • Large eraser
  • Laminator and laminate
  • File folders 
  • Letter envelopes
  • Clear packing tape

That is a big list! We already had most of these items.  I bought the new box of pastels.  They were at Hobby Lobby on sale..  yea!!  Pretty!

Have you ever colored with pastels?  They are so easy and fun!  Once you color with them, there is no going back to any other way!

Here was my first page:

Really,  I just laid down my color, not even to the edges and the just blended the chalk with a tissue or swab.   I then added shading and highlights the same way:)

Here it is again, I laid down the color, took a tissue and blended it to the edges.

Wow!  Look how neat that looks:)!   Another cool thing about coloring with pastels is that they are erasable.  So if you go too far out of the lines, no problem. Just erase and you are good as new.  How cool is that?!

Adding outlining with marker is the next step. 

While it looks nice here,  the shading and colors are so pretty:)

It looks brighter and more vibrant here.  But be warned, marker is NOT erasable! Lol:). Oh well, a little patch job and a 3year old will never know.  There is going to be a magnet there anyway. It’s all good:). 

It was messy, fun work.  We enjoyed the days just  coloring, cutting, visiting, and helping my grandson color and cut as well.  I even took quite a few breaks and snuggled with my new grand baby:). It doesn’t get better than that!

The next step was laminating the pieces and adding the magnets.  Here is a close up of the magnets:

Magnets help keep the pieces from moving and getting lost while little hands play and squirm:). 

I added the title to the folder and taped an envelope to the back to hold the pieces.  FINISHED!

Isn’t it so cute? My grandson grabbed it and started matching the shapes, saying the colors, and pretended to eat the vegetables right way:). It was so SWEET!

We had such a fun time on our coloring retreat:). Using pastels definitely amps up the coloring.  We loved it!!  I hope you give it a try sometime. You will be so glad you did!

Thank you for dropping by!
