This has been a week of ‘
Spring Fall cleaning’ (and moving the oldest’s room down to the basement per her request). Much of my day has been spent rummaging through closets, drawers, old boxes…. While the 4 year old has been fascinated with some of the items that have turned up (we found some old toys that held his attention all day), there have been a few times that he just needs something interesting to occupy his time while I’m sorting through everything. That’s when I sat down the other night and stitched him up an Eye Spy Bag. For the front side of the bag, I used a Hot Wheels print fabric while on the back I embroidered a race car design that’s built into my machine and then stitched on a printed list of the items inside. Even though he can’t read yet, at some point he’ll be able to, plus it reminds me what I stashed inside (some items are very tiny).
Hopefully this will capture his attention for a while – I’m almost done going through everything!
