I found these awesome Christmas
sweaters at the thrift store!!
Aren't they just prefect!!!
Well, fine so I wouldn't really wear them but I
had something else in mind for them.
My good friends invited us over for Christmas
lunch with their family.
They have four children....3 girls and a boy.
So I decided I wanted to do
something special for them.
It was 5 pm and we were supposed to be
at their house at 12 the next day.
So I got to work.....I grabbed the Christmas
sweater and started a crazy lady
pieces of fabric flying everywhere. I was
sleep deprived and on a mission. Probably
not the greatest combination.
I had it all mapped out in my head just what I
was going to do. When we showed up for lunch
there would be a bag sitting on the front porch.
Weird right?
Inside this bag was a card from Mrs. Claus herself!!!!
In this little note she said that she likes to pick
a family every year and make them a special gift.
These particular children minded their parents
all year round and were very well behaved.
So she made each one of them their very own stuffed
animal. But, these were very special animals because each
one was made using one of Santa's
old sweaters that he just can't fit into anymore.
He just eats to many cookies while he is delivering
presents. These animals are also a reminder to the
children to be good all year long.

It was so fun making these for the kids.
They were so excited to have this special gift from
Mrs. Claus!!!

Anyways, I had an amazing time at my friends home
with her awesome family. I had so much fun making
these cute little sweater animals too. So,
don't throw out those old sweaters....put them to
use!!! Have fun creating!!!
