Christmas Eve shirts for the girls

I didn't get to make special shirts for the boys this year.... you know I just ran out of time.
But I did get one special shirt made for the little girls (except Sophie, who was spending her 1st Christmas with her in laws... I'm still a little sore over that... I'm not gonna lie)

Each girl chose what they wanted on their shirt and made them all out of coordinating fabrics.

Hailey picked first and she wanted a Christmas tree.
I have a ton of Christmas tree files, but this one is definitely my favorite. A new one from Digistiches this year and a matching hair thing. Yea!

Liz picked this adorable reindeer pocket alphabet for Alyssa.

And I used this reindeer snap clip for her bow.

Isn't she the cutest thing!!!

I swear, this kid is mine.

Of course, I claim this one, too....
Emma picked a reindeer and honestly- I can't remember which file I used, but you can get this cute guy from Planet Applique, Digistitches, and Lynnie Pinnie. I have them all.
I used the reindeer snap clip again for her bow.

Ella chose a snowman- her favorite winter thing.
We both thought this guy from Planet Applique was perfect.
Then, we had to have a snowman on her bow.

And Lucy's is my favorite of all. She chose a kitty, of course.
This one is just TOO cute from Lynnie Pinnie. I put a Christmas present on her bow, even though she REALLY wanted a reindeer.

They all looked so cute in their shirts. I really wanted to make skirts for them, too, but.... the best laid plans.

And here are the little munchkins after Ella did 'make-overs' on them with her new make-up, that, sadly, didn't come out of their shirts. :(

Aren't they beautiful?

Christmas Eve was so fun!

do you have a favorite shop where you buy your embroidery designs??

Try dawn dishwashing liquid to spot treat and then soak overnight in an oxyclean solution. That seems to work for almost everything for us.

Yes, they are beautiful and the tops are adorable. I hope your holiday season was grand.
God bless,

OMG, they are all just too cute!! Love the shirts!! I didn't get as much made for Christmas as I would have liked, but I did get a bunch made. Maybe one of these days I'll get some pictures posted....not sure what I have pictures of? I did get the Christmas pjs made for all 4 of us (my daughter even go 2 sets since she wanted pants and I already made her nightgown)!
