|I came across this fabulous idea in a craft book I recently checked out from the library, and then bought on my Nook Color called, Handmade Home, by Amanda Blake Seoule. This is called Nathan's Clothing Tree. It is to be a memory keepsake for my Nathan, holding fabric memories of all the cute handmade items I made for him as a baby (or that he wore as a baby). I've also made THIS from her book too.|
|And then I hung it the wall in his room.....And added these cute hooks underneath (also from Hobby Lobby).|
|And here's what that corner nook now looks like. See the rest of Nathan's room HERE. |
Oh, and I forgot...it looks like there are a lot of leaves on the tree, but only 9 of them represent something I had made for him. My leaves for Nathan resembled: a bouncy seat cover, car seat cover, matching pj pants with Daddy, a diaper cover, his crib bumper, a layette he slept in, a changing pad, and Army pants to look like Daddy. I know what you're thinking... he was my first. I will never have that kind of time on my hands ever again, right? : ) Well, you may be right, but I'm quite an avid sewer...even now. I just love it!
