I decided that my resolution is to do more art with my son.  He is almost three and loves to paint and draw like his mom.  But like most mom's I don't want him to mess up his clothes!!  So I found this pattern online for an art smock that I very LOOSELY followed but truly altered to meet my needs.  here is the link to the inspiration: 

http://dontlooknow.typepad.com/dont_look_now/2008/09/kids-art-smock-pattern.html


I had a jersey knit dress that was dark brown and NOT being worn so I decided to repurpose it to make the main parts of the smock.  I added the striped sleeves from some leftover fabric and left the back open for easy entry.  I also added a tie at the top of the back of the neck.  I did a reverse applique "L" (my son's first initial) with the leftover striped fabric.

Last I decided to make an artist's palette paperweight to help hold the paper in place when my son is drawing or painting!!

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

Great idea! I need to make those for my kids. I usually just have them paint naked then get in the tub afterward, lol.

What a great resolution.  I also have an "L" who is almost 3 and loves to be creative.  The paperweight is a really great idea.

I need to make one of these.  My son loves to pain too, but is always a mess afterwards.

Thanks for sharing this...my girls keep coming home from their home-school group with stained dresses, so I guess it's time to dust off my sewing machine. And I need to do more art with them too. Yes, thanks for several good ideas! Grin

 Smiley  What a clever girl you are!!!  Love the palette.  Somethings we all need a helping hand - especially if you are 3.

Art lives through the generations.  Landon is the next in line.  You have guilted me into making a smock for Mya. I will show you the results.  I might even get on it today with all the snow what a great project!  Thanks for the inspiration.
