Whether your kids are going back to school, or you homeschool and are planning a new year, the end of summer and beginning of fall are memory making times. The ideas gathered here will help ease the transition and are fun projects to work on together. Enjoy!
I really love these stitched doilies and think it's such a great way to upcycle these items that aren't always easy to do. These precise, symmetrical stitches are wonderful but I think random abstract stitches would make a nice contrast too. If you're looking for a good side-by-side project to do with the kids then this might be it and just think how great they will look displayed together for wall art! Found at Wholly Kao. P.S. If you don't happen to have any doilies on hand, then make a run to the thrift store!
Maybe you've made cereal box notebooks before but have you thought about making them extra special with a bit stitchery? Julep has a tutorial for the stitching and making notebooks from cereal box cardboard.
