So while my son and his friend were playing with lego this morning, and my one-year-old was emptying half a loaf of sliced bread on the kitchen floor, I was very thankful to the bread for keeping her busy while I tried something out.
I painted a lego base-board with fabric paint.
Covered it with fabric and rolled it.
Flipped it over and, VOILA!
Full of the imperfections and rusticity of something produced by hand, I LOVE the outcome.
Next, I'll be doing these with bright primary colours, so it looks more like lego, maybe get out all the smaller boards and piece them together into a quilt for my four year old's bed. The dots might get a bit much though, maybe a cushion. I read Vanessa from V&Co's latest post on her dotty heart bag.
Think my girl-child needs one of those, for sure.
