I Made Stuff for Others

Even though I didn't think I was going to end up making things for Christmas, I did. In fact, all members of my sister's family (except her husband) got homemade gifts.

Her boys requested these shirts. Ask (within reason) and it shall be given, boys!

Her older daughter recently got her ears pierced. I saw some cute earrings made from candy wrappers, but sadly, they didn't turn out as well as hoped. They're okay, but. So I added some others made from regular fabric. I like that they're not copies of each other.

For her younger daughter, I saw some paper dolls that I could cut out with my Silhouette. These are backed with magnet paper so she can use them on a cookie sheet or the fridge. I think they turned out pretty cute!

And for my sister, she got this cross-stitched version of her family. I'm not sure what she's going to do with it (ornament? wall hanging?) but it's still pretty fun. Of course my sister is wearing flip flops. I love Emmy's striped tights. Also, can you believe all six of them have blue eyes?!

Finally for them, they got a new dog this year. So of course Brigham needed a new stocking. Of course I whipped up one while watching something.

Lastly, a friend is having her third baby. I made a baby carrier for her oldest child when she was pregnant with #2, so I figured #2 would like one to wear when my friend is wearing #3!


  1. All of these gifts are so awesome!! You are so talented Erin! Do you make all your shirts with freezer paper stencil? They turn out so professional! Ps this is Emily

  2. yep, this just shows i have the coolest sis ever. love brigham's stocking - super cute!

  3. I wish I had a silhouette :( I have the original circuit. Still works and gets the job done but I never invested in all the cartridges- which is what I love about the silhouette!! So fun!
