Okay...so here it is...my eldest monkey came home from PrePrimary yesterday hugging a picture and took great joy showing it to me...she then lowered her head looked up at me and very coyly said..."Mummy do you think we could make a tshirt of a koala with a kite like my drawing?"...
Then today at swimming almost busting with pride she told her swimming teacher as we walked into the pools that she and I were going to make a tshirt together from her drawing...which got me thinking ;)
Its not the first time she has asked to help me with designs...my far east dolly was inspired by her, she drew a cat for her cousin in England which we transformed into an applique (shamefully not sewn yet by Mummy!)
On the weekend my 13 year old stepdaughter proudly showed me some sketches she had done from photos/images she had found and her imagination and she too got very excited when I said next time lets make these into applique...and you can sew (groom, groom) them onto a tshirt if you like...another face lit up!
So as I drove in possibly the most humid Perth day ever the creative juices went into full speed...
And this is what I thought...How's about I invite your monkeys to draw some pictures/designs and ask you to share them with us in some sort of gallery...from this a lucky design and monkey would be chosen to have their creation translated into applique...and popped onto a shirt for them as a prize :)
So...what do you think...genius? or totally heat induced bonkers?
