introduction to fabric art

Because the school year started a day later due to a teachers training, our 5 year old granddaughter was spending a day with us instead.
She had a fun playing in the garden with her dolls, playing shops, eating plums straight from the tree (oh, memories of childhood!) and generally bossing her granddad about (who, of course, loves it).

Like all children, she likes drawing and colouring, and in particular she likes cutting out shapes from a various wrapping paper and making a collage.
To make it more interesting, we decided to use some fabric instead. She was very exited, because she loves rummaging in my room, and was very pleased when I let her choose bits of fabrics and ribbons.

Our project is not quite finished yet, she will come back to it next time, but what is more important, she enjoyed it very much and we had a lot of fun.
