More Handmade Sibling Gifts

December 18, 2007

Hair Clips for Betty.
This was a group effort. Ralph, Maude and Olive each worked on these hair clips for Betty. Mostly we used scraps of ribbon and hot glue. But Ralph and Maude experimented with beading on 2 of them. Aren’t they darling? Betty will love opening her little box of accessories.

Painted t-shirt for Oscar.
Ralph designed and painted a car onto a piece of canvas using fabric paints. We sewed it on to a tee from Target with deliberately rough lines — a good technique for kids. It turned out cute. I like that it wraps around the side.

I mean this honestly, I’m a mom of three and having SUCH a hard time finding time. Can you tell me how you do it? I can barely keep up with the laundry. sigh.

I don’t even have kids yet and I absolutely LOVE the idea of having siblings create something for each other – and they’re such great ideas! I think you are raising people who will be very thoughtful gift givers from now on. Will remember these things for the future!
