Do you need a super hero to come to your rescue? I know there are many moments of my day when I wish I could run to the roof top and turn on the Batman light! My goal is to complete a whole Super Heroes Busy Book, but I am going to share it with you one page at a time. Today as part of the Busy Bag Swap Tour I am going to show you how to create a washer machine I used for my "Super Hero Laundry Mat." This is a color matching page and I am really excited about how cute it turned out.
Washer Machine Supplies
Assorted colors of Felt
1 Pearl Snap
*Cutting Out Your Pieces
To make the washer machine pocket you will first need to cut 1 rectangle out of felt.
Now take the circle that you cut out of the rectangle and use it as the template for the door of the washer machine. You want to make it about a 1/2" larger than your template.
*Creating the Washer Machine
Now that we have all our pieces we can begin to make our washer machine. First you pin your washer machine rectangle to your finished page. Then stitch around the perimeter of the rectangle but NOT the circle! Now you have created a little pocket for your laundry to go into.
On the coordinating page I stitched colored outlines of the pieces of laundry that would be in the washer machine. Now, when little hands take the laundry out of the washer machine they can practice matching their colors by sorting the clothing.Hopefully while your little Super Heroes are doing their chores quietly entertained you can get something important accomplished...like going to the bathroom all alone!
