Merry Christmas!

Monkey Stitch has had a busy holiday season working on Christmas gifts for the many orders we got! We have been so thrilled to work on these special creations for you guys- thank you!

Here’s a sampling of what’s gone out!

Our biggest order ever- five shirts for five boys (cousins from 2 families) all 4 and under. (And a taggie square for the baby. 🙂 Wow! I loved the idea of the rookie shirt for the littlest. This was so fun, Tiffany!

A poinsettia shirt- we used metallic gold thread and it came out really shining. I have a new obsession with metallic thread, now!

Capes, Crayon Wallets, I Spy and Dinosaur Train, Oh My!

Jack’s birthday was almost completely homemade. He got a few special gifts from us that I had so much fun making.

First, and his favorite, a shirt based on his favorite show, Dinosaur Train! This was a pain to make, but totally worth it because he LOVES it!

Next a cape for dress up! One one side is a very  modified Super Why logo…

and the other a very simplified Captain Pickles logo.

And, of course, every superhero needs a corresponding mask.

He also got a crayon wallet with a pocket for notebooks, stickers, etc.

And finally, an I Spy bag with a handle. He doesn’t quite understand the concept, since he keeps asking me to “open it!” We’ll save it until he’s a little older.

I Spy

I attached this card to the outside so he can look for particular objects.

Blankie Fever

All blankies feature a cotton or flannel print fabric of your choice on one side, and a soft minky or fleece fabric on the other side. They also have ribbon tags for texture, as well as to hook toys to! Blankies come with an applique design on one side, with the option of adding a second design on the other side for $3-6 (depending on design).

The tot blankie is a medium sized blankie measuring approximately 20″x 22″. It’s great for covering small babies, or as the well-loved blankie of toddlers, without being so big that it drags on the ground.

The burrito blankie is a large blankie measuring approximately 30″x 37″. It’s called the burrito blankie because it’s excellent for swaddling a baby like a burrito! It’s also great a a soft floor blankie, crib blankie (for older babies), or wrapping baby up on a cold day!
