|Reindeer night gowns hastily whipped up Christmas Eve|
My big Christmas projects this year were two small gnome dollies for the girls. They are my first attempt at Waldorf style dolls, and I must say, they took far longer than I could have imagined for such little ladies with all the wild hair and clothes. They haven't played with them as much as I had hoped, but I think they are still overwhelmed by the overabundance of new things, and they do get some night time cuddles. At least I get to play with them. I do sometimes wish I was an elf at the North Pole with all those toys to make and play with.
I thought the stripey tights made out of a recyled t-shirt were a nice touch. I'd originally cut it up for this baby gown once upon a time.
The gnome hats were immediately removed, of course, because only grown ups seem to keep their hats on around here.
Jake's Dad brought many bits from his home in New Mexico, along with this handmade gift from one of the tribes out there, a little dream catcher that will go above Oona's bed when it's done adorning our tree.
There are a few more handmade gifts I'd like to share, but they have to be given first. And there our a few that got sent off in a rush, with no farewell photo. I'm hoping to get started on some of next years gifts while I'm snuggled inside on these bitter cold winter days. If anyone wants to share any of their handmade holiday presents, feel free to leave a link in the comments. It's always fun to see what others are making!
