We had a discussion the other day about putting up a notice board in our sons bedroom. Something to put 'tokens of success' on, to encourage him to try new things.
Funnily enough I had an old notice board tucked away under the stairs.
(the line you can see across the board is actually a cobweb, complete with a few spiders!!)
I pulled the frame off and gave it a coat of white paint.
Then had a look for some fabric!
I couldn't find enough star buttons, so I returned to the button collection for some plain white buttons.
I cut some wadding, slightly smaller than the board.
Then started to put together the front, fabric piece of the board.
I could have used a stapler to attach the fabric but I decided to use some fabric and sew the back to the front.
Why do I never tidy up as i go. . . .
So the finished board . .
Complete with football tickets from his first ever football match and tickets from the Remembrance Service he took part in. Both events made him really nervous and a bit tearful but he did them anyway, well done I say!!
