During the Christmas holidays my granddaughter Molly was told at school to make a journal of what she did in the holidays and what her hopes were for 2011. Molly was five years old just before Christmas. My daughter asked if I could do some felting with her for the cover of her journal. She had a wonderful time and the results I think were wonderful for her age. What do you think?
On the left is her pet rabbit, top central is her Christmas tree, bottom left is a giraffe that has slipped on the ice and her flower fairy on the right.
My daughter sewed the felt on to card.
All the embroidery stitches Molly did by herself.
I couldn't photograph everything that she did in her journal as there were too many pages but here are a few -
The teacher was so impressed that Molly had to take her journal to show the Headteacher and as you can see below she got a Headteachers award.
