Grandpa's Paddle

by Dee Wadsworth

  • Paint a paint stirrer, a piece of broomstick, dowel, etc. for the handle.  A hole may be drilled in it for hanging.
  • Stuff a cotton work glove with polyester fiberfill.  With needle and thread, sew a running stitch around the cuff of the glove.  Insert the handle, pull stitching tight and tie and/or spot glue the glove around the handle to hold in place.
  • Tie the scarf around it as shown in the picture.
  • Paint "Grandpa's Paddle" with a paint pen or marker on the handle.
  • Attach below poem with ribbon.

Dee said she is going to add a few buttons here and there to give it a little "oomph".  Great job Dee!  Of course the grandkids may think it doesn't need anymore oomph! lol
