Trying to get Tilly to think of a design before going on and making a
mess i mean creation is hard work, but today she managed to set all the fluffy pom poms in place before gluing them on (we used a glue gun, but Tilly wasn't allowed to touch it, i popped the glue on and she placed the pom poms on top). She is doing patterns at school so she enjoyed this part of the making. She also added some ribbon down the centre of the stocking.
Once she was happy with the design, she went ahead and wrote her name with the silver glitter glue - after all Christmas is all about shiny and sparkly things.
Her stocking is now ready to hang up and for her to wait for Santa to fill it with toys. There is so much satisfaction from making your own things this Christmas and its great for sitting down and spending time with your little ones :)
