I made a growth chart for Baby Hank. After looking at a lot of charts, I decided I wanted something really simple and gender neutral. I had some nice organic linen that I sewed the measuring tape and ironed on the fuzzy fabric numbers. I bought a large piece of wood and covered it with some batting and the decorated linen using a staple gun. I cut a bunch of little iron on flannel ‘labels’. They are on the back of the chart in a little pocket so I can grab one and iron it on every 6 months when I record his height. His birth height and 6 month height are already ironed on.
One thing we missed with the kids was a reminder of their young growth years. Great idea and an even better job of making the chart Liz!!Grandpa Mac
