Happy Thursday to everyone! Today is a very special day! It is my Middle E's 4th Birthday! We have a fun filled day planned and I'm sure she is going to have a blast! Today is also a new Thankful Thursday Challenge at Crazy About Cricut! This week's theme is Summer Reading and the challenge is to make bookmarks to save your place in those special family story books or if your kids are grown, to save the spot in your summer reading books! I know someday, I'll have time to read again...hehe...though, I don't want them to grow up too fast! Here is the bookmark Oldest E made for our challenge!
She really wanted to use this panel from Bo Bunny and despite already having plans for it, I let her use it! It really was perfect for her project.
She wanted to sew it just like Mommy does so we got out the sewing machine and went to town. She tried doing a few different fancy stitches and had so much fun with it.
Unfortunately, my sewing machine gave her the same problems it gives me. I have been having a terrible problem with it birdnesting. I've cleaned it really good, fiddled with the settings and had my friend look at it, but she agrees it needs to go to the sewing shop to be repaired (insert sad face here). Oh well, Oldest E doesn't seem to mind the little mess on the back of her bookmark.
Here she is personalizing her bookmark. She learned what an apostrophe was today so our craft time ended up being a good spelling lesson too!
Here is her finished bookmark. She LOVES it and immediately stuck it in her favorite book!
Afterwards, she decided she want to practice her sewing more, so she pulled out her sewing machine and went to work.
She even showed Baby E how to use it!
We always have so much fun with our Thankful Thursday projects! I hope you'll join us for our Summer Reading Bookmark Challenge this week! You have two weeks to complete your project and link it up at Crazy About Cricut! Make sure you stop by and see the rest of the Design Team projects and to check out the fun prize for this month! Thanks for stopping by today!
