We'll take handmade items that are meant to last over store bought purchases any day of the week. This quilted and embroidered growth chart was made from scraps and is sure to be an heirloom piece long after little Molly has stopped growing.
While most growth charts boast numbers up and down the length of the piece, this quilted version uses scraps of fabric in the shape of small squares to stand in for that job instead. As Molly's height is taken, it's recorded and embroidered on the side in not only inches, but the time of year as well.
There isn't much we don't love about this project as it instantly becomes an heirloom in your home and can be customized in style and color to fit your home perfectly. Make it rustic or modern, the choice is up to you!
