About 6 months ago I started praying through the "Fruit of the Spirit" with her before bed. About a month ago, I started making her repeat after me: "Love. Joy. Peace. Patience. Kindness. Goodness. Faithfulness. Gentleness. Self-Control. Fruit-of-the-Spirit!" She can do the first four almost on her own.
For Christmas, I wanted to make Ivy a gift. Let me be more specific: an educational gift, haha. I wanted to sew the letters of the alphabet, but was running out of time. Even sewing numbers (0123456789) seemed like a little too much at the time. So I decided to do shapes. Oh, and I also made a cute bag for the shapes to go in. Here's how it turned out:
notice how the circle has circles on it and the square has squares on it... :)
and the heart has tiny tiny hearts on it (in between the birds)
I used felt, fabric, buttons and elastic.
