I ran across this idea a really long time ago and filed it into the back of my mind for a someday-I-must-make-this-because-my-babies-are-only-small-for-a-short-time-and-I-must-savor-their-smallness-type project. I was originally going to say pre-Pinterest, but perhaps not (though I couldn't find it among my pins . . . possibly because I have eleventy-billion).
I've been waiting all pregnancy long to work this one up so I could add Kiwi's little hand. :)
|Ack! We are a family of FIVE!!|
A little tip if you ever decide to do this project yourself: trace and then sew one hand at a time. I tried to trace 'em all first and wowzers . . . I started going a little cross-eyed there for a bit. I actually had to wash off my lines after doing a few hands and go one at a time because it was making me mental, and I kept stitching around the wrong lines.
Which was making my hands look all crazy-like. And not always human.
Anyway, I don't recommend that method. Do as I say, not as I do. And all that jazz.
What? Jazz Hands? Sorry . . . super weird ending to a post.
