I started by tracing everyone's hands. I'm sure D thought it was mighty strange my stalking him for several days nagging him to let me trace his hand. By the way, it is next to impossible tracing a 7 week old's hand. Just in case you were wondering. If you must do it, definitely wait until they are very asleep and even then, trace as quickly as possible.
I cut out the hand tracings and then traced those with some fabric pens. I got an extra large pad, so there was plenty of room.
I think it will look nice when he is using it. Plus, it's always a nice reminder of how small those hands were once. Simple and useful, that makes a good gift in my book. I hope he likes it.
Have a Happy Day!
