We love growth charts and this is one of the most unique we've seen. Who doesn't love a good vintage measuring tape - it somehow manages to be retro and modern at the same time. Best of all - you can make one too.
This project is the brainchild of Cathe of Just Something I Made. She just happens to collect vintage measuring tapes and had the clever idea to digitally scan one to produce images large enough to print out. She walks you through making one yourself (with her image template) on her blog - and she just added a metric version for her friends abroad.
Even if your kids are beyond the age when they'll let you measure them, this would be a cool graphic to adorn many a bedroom or playroom.
