They Inherited the Crafty Gene
My girls are crafters and artists. There is no longer any doubt. For the past week they have been working madly creating gifts for their friends.
They started with three little softies.
A tree for one friend. Finally that huge box of buttons I have has come to good use.
A candy cane for another. We decided that the wonky stitches were part of its charm.
And a softie gift box for a third. This photo doesn't really show it very well, but I love the little face!
They even created their own gift tags. DD#1 did the drawing, DD#2 added the color.
My girls complained that the softies weren't enough. They needed more ideas. I couldn't resist. I went to the closet and pulled out a Christmas gift I had planned on giving to DD#2, Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts. They found just the thing in its pages. The next day I was off in search of Moleskines, and that night they made these sweet little journals. Now I want one. If I'm a good little girl, maybe they'll stuff one in my stocking.
They didn't forget their momma. They made these cute little stars from some old sweaters that we felted. They hung five of them in a row between the kitchen and living room.
