I have to show you this.  It is from a very special great grandson.  Carter, who is 3 years old, (and his mother, Kim) made this darling bag for me.  I will cherish this precious butterfly bag forever.
This is a close up.  Did you notice his hand prints make up the upper part of the butterfly wings?
And prints of his cute little feet make up the bottom part of the wings.  Note the dots on each toe that make it look more like a butterfly!  Kim, my wonderful granddaughter, came up with the design herself.  She was a little upset because Carter decided to smudge out some of the dots around the butterfly’s head, but to me that makes it uniquely from Carter.  I love it and wanted to share it with you.  You could do something like this with your child or grandchild and have a wonderful Christmas gift. 

Carolyn’s Homesewn has a pattern for a tablerunner.  Check it out.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

That's awesome. A friend of mine used to watch E for me while I was at work. She made me a mother's day card with hand and foot prints. I still cherish it!
