Baby Moonpie's Father's Day Gift

Look at this foot. Isn't it just the cutest? 

I asked Moonpie what she wanted to get her daddy for Father's Day, but since she didn't have enough money saved up for a sports car, we decided to go with a homemade craft. For Mr. Stitches's Father's Day gift I decided to capture Moonpie's foot and hand prints. 

(I tried to take pictures of each step, but taking pictures while trying to prevent paint from covering our entire house proved easier in theory than practice. At least it's washable!)

Here is Moonpie showing (trying to eat) the paints. 

Step one: smear finger paint all over baby's hand and ask yourself "Why did I think this was a good idea?"

This was the best picture of her feet I could get. 

Finished product!

I added "Happy Father's Day" and her name and the date and put it in a frame.


  1. My exact thought.. Who would think putting paint on a baby would be a good idea?? It did turn out cute and will be a precious memory for all of you!!

    1. Yeah, the idea sounded better than the actual process, but I'm glad I did it...
