This year was the year of budgeted Christmas gifts. My original plan was to make them all, but ain’t nobody got time for that, am I right? I was able to make a few however, like this fox face shirt I posted last week, and this cat shirt below.
While attempting to do Christmas presents on a budget this year, I started by shopping my own fabric and craft stash. (Honestly, probably something I should do every time I start a project. Teehee.) I had a few t-shirts I got on super sale at Joann’s a few months ago, and I obviously have tons of fabric, so I decided to combine the two.
A friend of mine asked if I would make a sea-themed kids item for a charity fundraiser they’re having. Obviously I said yes.
This was year 5 of making costumes for my best friend’s daughters. The first couple of years we got to decide what they were going to be, but it’s been fun for these last three years to see what they’re passionate about dressing up as for Halloween.
