The time and heart put into them just make them so very special.
One day I dream of being able to knit beautiful gifts like her.
But, for now I am happy to complete simple sewing projects like this:
I wanted to make something special for Evan this year.
I always find it SO hard to find projects for boys that are easy and that I think he will like....
So, when I saw this idea on Pinterest I was super excited!
What is it you ask?......Tadaaaaaaaa!
A quilt for his bed made from a bunch of his old t-shirts.
I can't help but smile when I look at it.
Now I must admit... it took a little longer than I expected. Many hours were spent cutting squares. Sewing X's. Trimming thread. Sewing squares. And finally cutting along all the edges. But I couldn't be more pleased with how it turned out.
I really, really do!
It is all wrapped up and ready to go under the tree.
I can't wait for Christmas morning.
I hope he loves it too!
