For Christmas I like to make something for my cousin's kids.  Here's what I made this year. 

Sadie is 3 years old.  This year, she gets a CRAYON APRON.  I love how this turned out.  I think it's the most adorable thing I've made.  I saw a similar apron in a magazine for $22.00, and I instantly thought, "I can make that!" 



Lena is almost 1 year old.  I made her a FABRIC BLOCK with her name on it.  It is loaded with ribbon loops for her enjoyment and it has a bell inside.

That apron is absolutely the most adorable thing ever. I love seeing stuff in magazines that are DIYable. And you did a great job!

I love the crayon apron.  What a great idea.  I'm stealing it! ...if that's okay.   Cheesy

Here's how I'll package it.  I folded the apron and rolled it up.  Then I used the apron strings to secure it.  I'll wrap it in bubble wrap to protect the crayons and put it in a box.

Goodness! I have a 2 year old granddaughter who is almost ready for something like this. I will have to keep it in mind.
Fantastic!
