I finished a commission of a personalised reward chart for a friend whose daughter has been waking up in the night:

I used lots of pretty girly fabrics, appliqued her name and made some felt stars with a pocket to keep them safe:

It is backed with home dec fabric and corners with a dowling rod to easily hang it up:

The feedback has been wonderful, her daughter has been asking to go to bed early and if she's up in the night to use the toilet she heads straight back to her own bed so that she can "get a pretty star"! This is the start of good sleeping habits and I know how much kids love things with their names on. 

The chart can be used for any type of praise you want to give your child and since I made one for our children I can really vouch for the effectiveness. We starting using it in November 2012 and they still love being rewarded and sticking the badges on the chart, the novelty hasn't worn off!

Another check off my FAL list :)

Custom reward charts are now available in my Etsy shop.
