nurturing creativity

here's much excitement in the googiehaus.


this sunday the googie cousins arrive for their annual summer visit.


one of the highlights is a present exchange between all the cousins.


we've been working on (what we think) is a cool gift for their two girl cousins, ages 12 and 8.


it started with this:


and then we added this:





a box full of treasures
 we took a paper mache box and covered it with three coordinating papers, all mod podged on. the letters were stickers from the dollar store, also mod podged on.


inside...



all the sewing basics:
scissors
sew on velcro
pins, marking pens, fabric glue, tape measure, ruler
trims, appliques, thread

also, a selection of pretty fabrics, chosen for their pattern and ease of sew-ability (totally a word)



and some super easy patterns sized for an American Girl Doll (or any similar sized doll)




it all fits neatly into the little box



ready and waiting to unleash a world of creativity and self-expression through the medium of fabric :0)




what do you think? will they love it? we hope so! i know my girls keep sighing over it, wishing it was for them! (i feel a little like a bad bad mommy right now!)



Linking up to THESE fine parties!!
