The Thirteen Days of Christmas (which we read over the twelve days each year.) We talked about the story of Herod and why we remember this day. I loved taking the story and making something to help babies of our time who do not have what they need. It seemed so fitting to do something in honor of those 'nameless' babies who lost their lives years ago.
I imagine teaching my boys the blanket stitch on this project in a few years and them picking fabric to each make a blanket. I'd also love to do this as a church project some year and teach other children in the parish to sew. It is such a simple project and they would have such fun picking fun flannels to sew. I am hoping this is a tradition that sticks!
