Getting Handsome for Christmas

I’ve been excited to plan out all of Jace’s outfits for Christmas. I found button up shirts for our Christmas Eve celebration with Nolan’s family and the day after Christmas celebration with my family, but I still wanted something casual and cute for Christmas Day. I originally planned to applique a felt Christmas tree on a shirt.
But then, Kristie over at OCD-Obsessive Crafting Disorder made THE CUTEST thing… car
I fell in love. I knew exactly what I wanted to make Jace.

A tree would have been cute, but this makes it all that much more fun. I used some leftover green from mine and Nolan’s stockings, blue from a quilt I made in college, a scrap of brown fabric, and some buttons I was eventually going to use on a scarf.

And, after one year of owning my machine, I finally got out the manual to learn how to use the embroidery function. It was so easy to just program in all the letters and let the machine go! I can’t believe I waited this long.

I decided to have him wear it to church today too so we could get more than one wear out of it. He was feeling goofy in Daddy’s lap before heading to the nursery. I love it!
