tutorial here and I had to learn some extra knitting skills to complete the project, but I thought that it turned out rather well.
The buttons I sewed on for a bit of decoration were made by a Flickr friend of mine.
But out best gift was the collaborative collage painting that the girls and I made together for him. It was so incredibly fun to work together with them on something this big and fabulous. We used a real art canvas, Mommy's good craft papers, and Mommy's 'real paints'. It was a multi-step project with lots of opportunity and space for everyone to contribute.
