Upcycling Grade 2 Artwork

It started with this.IMG_0375I uncovered this painting my daughter did in Grade Two. I guess it was after we had gone on an airplane ride, her first.

I admit that I have trouble throwing some things away. I figured I could use the old schoolwork in a piece of art. So I cut it up.

The paper was the perfect weight for stitching through.

And the piece of paper was big enough to make a decent sized little basket.

I actually sewed the strips in the exact order I cut them.IMG_7145IMG_7146

I’m really glad I took a photograph of the airplane first.
