Rainbow Afghan ~free pattern~ I have looked for this pattern for years. I bought a handmade afghan just like this when my son was in 6th grade. I still have it and it looks as good as when I bought it.
These are SOOO easy to make!! I made a pair of black high tops for my baby cousin's first birthday. Took black high tops, clear rhinestones (or crystals if you have the money to spend), pink ribbon and a few hours of my time to perfect it. They were so super cute on her! Can be used on any cheap kids shoes as well.
The Dear Child manifesto is for anyone (teachers, grands, caregivers, parents) welcoming a child into their spaces. I think of it as a love letter to children. They are precious, deserving, and in big need of our welcoming hearts, always. Though I'm far from perfect, this manifesto is a guide for me as I strive to do my best when it comes to caring for one precious three year old.
