Mommy’s Little Monster

I made a new onesie for my little man. It was a monster, of course.

In light of that, I thought I’d share an Autism-related craft I made a while back.

As I’ve mentioned before, before the birth of my son, I worked with preschoolers with Autism for 4 years. I made this shirt to show support for every child I’ve known who is affected by this disorder.

Robot Parade

First person to name that tune & the band who sings it wins!*

(*Disclaimer: No prizes actually involved. Winning only good for gloating to friends who may or may not read this blog.)

Anyway.  It was a snowflake scarf.
First, I started out by making a snowflake template.
