Ella has been off school for the last 7 days with Swine Flu so it was the perfect opportunity to do some art and craft :) One of our projects was a photo frame made out of felt. We cut a rectangle of felt, then I got Ella to stitch around the outside with some red embroidery thread. After she'd finished stitching we measured the size of a photo and cut out the middle part just a little bit smaller than a photo (so the photo sits behind it), then she stitched around that part too. Next comes the fun part - decorating! Ella raided my sewing boxes and chose buttons, ribbons, little flower embellishments and some bows.
