Personalised height chart for children

Make your own child height chart out of fabric

It’s unbelievable how kids seem to grow taller by the day. To keep track of their height, a DIY personalised height chart makes a great gift idea for the arrival of a new baby or a young child’s birthday. Making a fabric height chart is easy, and you can decorate it with edding textile markers. A German blogger designed this one for us with illustrations inspired by a children’s book. In her video, she shows us how she made this amazing decoration for a nursery or children’s room using our textile markers and pens. edding textile products are ideal for all manner of light-coloured textiles including cotton, silk and linen. There are two stroke widths and a range of 20 colours to choose from, including neon shades for a particularly vibrant effect. What’s more, they’re really practical for beginners and advanced crafters alike: each of the edding textile sets – blues/greens, reds or assorted base colours – gives you five perfectly colour-coordinated shades at your fingertips.
