To go along with their pretend play it occurred to me that it wouldn't be hard to make up a handful of felt band-aids, especially since I was already sitting at the sewing machine when the thought struck. And since whipping up band-aids sounded positively whimsical compared to wrestling the horrid piece of cheap satin I've been doing battle with this week as part of making Christmas dresses, it didn't take much deliberating before suddenly we were in the medical supply business. A few scraps of felt, some leftover grosgrain ribbon, and fifteen minutes later we had band-aids.
|No flesh-colored bandages here! (Unless you're a smurf.)|
|Since the band-aids were made of felt they actually stuck to surfaces surprisingly well...including baby clothes.|
|Poor baby apparently was in pretty bad shape: good thing Dr. Robyn was there to patch him back together!|
|Our Thanksgiving tree made quite the band-aid magnet.|
Now back to work on those Christmas dresses... :)
