DIY TOYS - Tin drum

I saw this post and thought Lacy (2yrs) would love one of these homemade tin drums. I basically followed their tutorial but as it had no photos I’ve included photos of Lacy’s being made…

I used a Milo tin.

The fabric used was an offcut of recycled curtains – originally an Ikea print. Lacy (2yr) declared it “My favorite”.

My bowl was close enough to the right size to make the felt ‘skins’. (BTW the Sharpie came off the bowl with warm soapy water).

There had to be some sewing to make it fun… My first round was too far apart so I did a second round I wanted a diamond pattern so I sewed a second round in between the first, only adding beads the first time.

Lacy couldn’t wait to play it! Now I need to drink more Milo so I can make one for Aniya.
