I made this for a swap and since my partner received today, I'm going to post it here. It's a growth chart for her baby-on-the-way! Her nursery will have a nature theme. I was all amped up to paint a growth chart on wood or MDF, but it seemed like the shipping would be challenging. So after PMs and wist-stalking, I thought why not a fabric tree?
Mounted in my basement wall.
Close-up of the many little tucks or pleats or whatever they're called on the trunk.
It's really hard to sew crooked on purpose, but controlled crooked!
A handy dandy pen pocket for the fabric pen:
And how it will look to the baby (when he or she gets here), only on a cuter colored wall:
I'd never done anything like this before and I was pretty pleased with how it turned out, but boy was I nervous about my partner liking it. She does or is faking it really well! YEY!
