A Favorite Gift to Give

Each year I like to decorate a store bought clothing item as gifts fr my grandson and nephew. This year it took forever to find two denim jackets for two beautiful little boys. It was almost Christmas before they were completed. My three year old nephew in California opened his gift on New Year's Eve. He loved his jacket with the machine embroidered Mickey Mouse on the back, so much, that he wouldn't take it off the next day!

Before my four year old grandson was born, I designed an applique for the back of a denim jacket. Finally he is wearing a size big enough to apply the design to the back of a jacket. He got his in time for Christmas.
A bit cranky and tired after a trip to the zoo.
It just fits the width of the back!
Can someone tell me why it was so hard to find 2 denim jackets for boys in Florida?

What special memories you are making by personalizing items for your grandchildren. I still remember some of the special things my grandmother made for me. Thank you for sharing with the Clever Chicks Blog Hop! I hope you’ll join us again next week!
