This is the same concept as a lacing card. We are starting with large dots on fabric, a hoop, a large blunt needle, and embroidery floss. My mom has saved a few bits of fabric that I sewed on when I was 3! She would draw simple designs onto fabric and I would follow the outline. She'd also give me the button can and turn me loose! What a good and patient mommy I had/ have :). I've had good intention of starting before now, but at least we started. I plan on having Ella stitch the A,B,C's onto separate squares of fabric and then we'll make a little quilt together out of them.
