Still workin' my elves

Wolfman finished making his soft "swords" for everyone. They are wrapped and under the tree. He can hardly stand it! But he's fully prepared to answer all inquiries with, "It's a surprise."

Today some good friends came to spend the day while their Mom worked. This guy (Big D) needed to make a gift for his uncle. The requirements were that it had to cost under $5, be handmade, and begin with the same letter as the recipient's name. Since Uncle S is into Spiderman and grilling, Big D decided to make him a spiderman apron! Big D traced the pattern and did the hard work of cutting out the spider, then I helped him by sewing around it. It turned out GREAT!

I will definitely be making more of these!


The Princess still hadn't made her gift for Bitt-E, so she and her friend Vee worked for a couple of hours creating felt food for BittE's new toddler kitchen.



They had so much fun and it all turned out really great. (Breakfast is pancake, egg, and sausage patty. They made a sandwich and Fries for lunch. Then for dinner she gets a bag of chips, pizza, and icecream! Ummm, nutritious and delicious.)

Love the spiderman apron. What a creative way to come up with gifts-starting w/ the first letter of the person's name. I guess people can just give me money$$$!

Jules said...

I bet this will mean so much more to them too! The receiving and the giving. Great ingenuity!
