Making Memories

Being at the beach I thought I could use a wristlet to carry all of my small belongings. My daughters helped out too. We traced there hands on Heat n Bond Lite and ironed on the Heat n Bond Lite to their choice of fabric. Then I cut it out and stitched around the hand fabric onto the linen seen in the photo. We wanted more color so my girls helped me pick out the other patchwork pieces. The entire straight sewing my oldest daughter helped with. She even helped with the embroidery with the color of string and where to put it. She liked to watch the machine "draw". I love my wristlet and the memories we made making it. I hope that my girls will grow up enjoying sewing as much as I do.

That is so cute! I love the little handprint. When my kids were little, I had each of them (three boys and a girl) trace his/her hand on felt, then I put them together to make a turkey tail for a Thanksgiving decoration. Every year I take it out, I see how much they've grown. They range from 18-25 now and it's hard to believe they were that little once. I hope your cute wristlet brings back lots of happy memories for you over the years, too!
