handmade gifts

I love being able to make the gifts I give. I'm not able to make something for everyone on my list but I try to make as many as I can. We pick names in our families in order to cut down on costs for everyone and also so that we don't end up with so much "stuff". This year we picked the names of three cousins that are in the same family...so I went ahead and made some matching/coordinated outfits for them. I love making tie shirts and I'll make them as long as I have someone who's willing to wear them. So I made two tie shirts and then a shirt/skirt combo for little Kiley. The kids and I picked out this fabric together and I love it. I'm really loving the lime green and gray combo. I have a few other handmade gifts that I made and I hope to get around to sharing those next week...for now, here are the coordinated outfits I made.

I couldn't find a 3T shirt for Kiley so I got her a 2T and a 4T because I'm pretty sure the skirt will grow with her since it's just elastic and pretty long.



and a fun little detail on the back!
