Kids' Artworks Made Into Cushions
I sewed the calico squares that the kids painted into cushions. Kept it simple and just did plain turned sides - no fancy edges. The kids love them, they look great, and they're so nice and soft. I think this sort of thing is great for kids.
A couple of years ago, when she was about 2, I did a similar cushion with my oldest. We did hand prints and other finger painting with fabric paint on a table (on plastic) outside, then I laid the fabric on it to make a print. It was sewn into a cushion and is proudly used often. She loves that she made it. Its nice for them to see stuff they've made displayed, and even better, used.
