Henry's Handmades

I had fun making a few things for Henry's birthday this year, and promised a quick look at what I worked on here in this space. I didn't forget, I've just been... a little short on time lately. However, after admitting to myself that the time deficiency will more than likely be perpetual, I have since made myself dig out what was gifted and take a few quick pics to share.

Now, be kind... I am by no means a master seamstress, nor a photographer... in fact, I didn't realize until composing this post that the light in the room I was in was really just terrible... That being said, here are Henry's Handmades, and the inspiration behind them.

Audrey's and Henry's birthday crowns- cardboard, felt, and embellishments

New this year- Birthday Bags- muslin, cotton scraps, and rick-rack


Another new tradition this year- cotton Height Scrolls

We, of course, have to make one of everything for Sister, too, and her Height Scroll is still in the works. I plan on transposing her height markings from our pantry door to the scroll before shifting her to the birthday-mark tradition (we were measuring her twice a year). She hovered around me the entire time I worked on Henny's, saying, "Will you make me one, too, Mama?"

Of course.

So there you have it, the all-consuming little projects that took heart, soul, and anything "spare" around here, and were gifted to a little guy who won't even remember them... or at least, he'll never remember not having them, and that's kinda a cool thought.

Totally worth it.
