First, I had a thought of brilliance at our 3:00am feeding... why not try Microsoft clip art for patterns! Boy, I found lots of cute stuff... including this whimsical Santa. These buttons are from my great grandmother's stash. I used one of our old baby wash cloths for the beard. And Santa's face was from a baby hat, that never fit Mike's big head.
For Adelyn I made a shirt to go over a long sleeve onesie made like a pillowcase dress would be- it is so easy! They have great video tutorials on utube. Then made a yo-yo, added a button, and attached a clip that could go onto one of her headbands.
My very favorite part of this project was having Adelyn all snuggled up in my craft room snoozing away to the hum of the sewing machine. I am looking so forward to clearing off a spot for her to craft next to me someday!
Ps. Photo's posted soon of my cuties modeling their custom Christmas couture!
