Hen Shaped Book - pattern

Cute little hen with 3 chicken. I made a hen shaped book for kids. It is suitable for 3-6 years old kids and you can make a lot of activities.


Activities you can make with this book:
1.      Talk about the family
2.      Talk about the farm and the animals from the farm
3.      Talk about the life cycle of the chicken
4.      Teach your kids about “inside” and “outside” and play with the chicken inside and outside the nest
5.      Create a short story or a song
6.      Play “I spy …”

7.      Take the book when you travel by plane or you are in a visit


Cozy in their nest.


 You can buy the pattern and make your own book:
Craftsy Store
Etsy Store

Lavender Cross Stitch Chart

I love lavender, its perfume and its color. These days I have tried an old passion: cross stitching. I learn it when I was in 7th Grade. Now I make these simple design for some perfumed items: a card, a sachet and a bookmark. I used my daughter's markers and I made a chart for this pattern. You can download it HERE


The sachet is made from aida and has another sachet inside filled with lavender.


I sew the lavender on aida, then I sew aida on the felt. I put some lavender seed under it. Smells wonderful!



I hope you like my project and my pattern. Leave a comment if you have a feedback. 
Thank you.
