They won't be little for long! Children grow unbelievably fast, and it's the simple things that develop into treasured memories over the years. Capture your children's little hands with a subtle and natural wall hanging. This art piece looks great hanging amid framed photos on a wall.

What you'll need:

Instructions:

  1. On the calico squares, trace two children's hands.
  2. Cut out the handprints and set them aside.
  3. Turn under and sew the edges of the 12 x 6 inch fabric.
  4. Ad

  5. Pin the calico handprints to the right side of the solid strip of fabric and stitch them onto the fabric. You may hand stitch them or use a zigzag stitch on a sewing machine.
  6. Place the twig against the backside and top end of the solid fabric strip, then fold the fabric to envelop the twig. The twig should protrude from both sides of the wall hanging. Stitch this top fold straight across.
  7. Tie the raffia to both ends of the twig to create a hanger.
  8. Sew or hot glue the buttons along the stitches as embellishment.

This lightweight wall hanging can be suspended with a small tack or pin. Grandparents, aunts, and preschool teachers love handprint wall hangings as gifts. You can also sew calico handprints onto aprons, pillows, cup towels, valances, and vests.
