Just cute

Has everyone seen the totally adorable ornament template at MushroomMeadows yet? I am so chuffed that she made them when I asked, and I have been thinking of other ways to use them. (The ornaments are cut out, but Jack has not been feeling very crafty, lol.)

I used Crayola Fabric Crayons around Father's Day to make a shirt for Dave with Jack's art on it, and I thought I would pull them out again. I traced the ornaments onto flour sack towels and then had Jack color them in.
Iron them onto the towels, sew on some ric rac and voila! more easy Christmas presents.

I love the tree one in this set, Jack gave it eyeglasses. (I know it's hard to see his coloring, like I said, he has not been in the crafting mood and he just wanted to draw a few lines and be done with it.)

The crayola website says not to use 100% cotton because it will wash out, but I am pretty sure I used 100% cotton for Father's Day and it hasn't washed out. Here's hoping, right? LOL
We also made them into a shirt for my Dad. Jack is asking everyday if Grandpa is going to wear his shirt. He is just too cute sometimes.

I keep forgetting to mention that we saw August Rush last weekend. Wow. Make time to see it in the theater, where it is bigger than life. And bring tissues. That is one awesome movie, and I don't say that very often.

P.S. You are all making such lovely bottle brush trees! Won't you add them to my flickr group ?


  1. sweet! Will we see pictures of Daddy and Grandpa wearing their shirts?

    You say take a hanky to August Rush? I'll pass on that one, then. If normal people cry, even just a little, I weep. It's embarrassing. I have to watch those movies alone, in the privacy of my own home. By myself. Nobody else around. Anywhere.

  2. Just cute is right!

  3. Those are so cute! What a great gift idea. :)

  4. Cute towels and tee!

    (I can't remember what I did to my bottle brush trees. I bought them, never made them and don't know where they are!)

  5. love the bottle brush trees. jack is an artist.
