    Why can you find things for others, but can't find things that you're looking for that you want!! :oops:

    I don't have a little one soooo, I'm looking for a small handprint for applique. Can someone point me in the right direction? Probably about around 3", not a wide open print - more of a relaxed hand look. :lol: :lol:

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Try googling hand print coloring book. Click images first then type that in the box. Lots of pictures come up and hopefully you will see what you are looking for.

    I have a flat screen monitor and sometimes when I need a pattern I can tape a piece of paper to the screen and trace it. It works kinda like a light box. :thumbup:

    Try the nursery at your church. They should know you and won't think that you are up to no good.

    If the handprint Marsye put up is the right size, you can trace it.

    Trace your handprint then reduce it on a copy machine.

    I tried that!! I don't know what's going on with computer, but I can't get it to scan where I need it to!! Computer gremlins are at work!!!

    Actually, I might try and make the fingers on marsye's a little closer together and see if it'll work. If not, I'm going to a daycare!!!

    Thanks everyone!!

    Unless the daycare knows you this could get you in a lot of trouble.

    "Hi, could I trace the hands of all the kiddies here?"

    When I've made mothers' and grandmas' quilts in the past I've used the tracings of their own little ones' hands. If you have a recipient in mind you might try to get these? (It helps to have someone on the "inside" ;))
