Paper crafts never last as long as our memories do, and watching old art projects rip and fade over the decades is a hard reminder of passing time. Turn paper art into a fabric quilt with this easy tutorial that will preserve your child's Thanksgiving turkey craft long after the shelf life of the original project has ended. This is the perfect project for a long day inside with energetic children. They can do fun construction paper crafts while you practice your technique with this easy sewing project! This is the perfect way to make memories and preserve their souvenirs long after all the kids have left the nest.

What a sweet idea! You can't save every single piece of artwork and even if you did, how can you display it all. This project allows the memories to be saved forever and really hold up well. You could bring this quilt out each year, and either hang it for a holiday wall hanging, or drape on the back of the sofa to proudly display it....I could see doing this with many types of art and translating the art into a quilt makes it even more practical and useful too! Great idea!
