Check one off the Christmas gift making list! Have you seen the IKEA Tidny fabric? It's this great canvas-like cotton with interesting drawings on it that are meant to be colored in with permanent markers or fabric pens. I think it's a fantastic way to give a personalized gift. Have the kids color the fabric and then sew it up into a tote for giving.
I considered writing a tutorial, but this one is better than I would write up. I've also seen this fabric made into skirts, shorts, and pillows. I plan on making the girls some skirts. I have a feeling they'll get a kick out of wearing something they've colored. What's everyone else making to give this year?
