The birthday run down for January; dads is the 9th, sons the 15th, nephew 19th, mother-in-law 24th, husband 30th & brother-in-law 31st.. its a busy month. And of course I have been making gifts.. not for everybody.. but I crocheted a couple of hats for my mum-in-law and felted slippers for my dad..
Its my lovely husbands 40th birthday.. I didn't really know what to give or make for him.. but I thought long and hard and came up with a couple of ideas. This is the more sensible pressie I've made :D
Whenever I get into my hubbys car after work, I have to move an armful of paperwork off the passenger seat first. Soooo I decided to make him a nice felted wallet / folder to keep it all nice and tidy. I didnt want it to be boring, or silly either (can't have him embarrased if his boss needs a lift now can I?!)
SO, I decided to make it nice and bright, and decorated with our handprints..
|Stupidly I was suprised at our handprints.. |
wasn't it just last year that the kids hands were half the size of mine?
Which is which?
As all of our hands are pretty much adult sized now I decided to felt them in so that they shrunk down with the felt - I think they would of dominated it too much otherwise.
|Finished with a vintage button from a button tin Gary gave to me..|
the colour is perfect for picking up the duckegg handprints
