  1. My mom made a whole lot of my Christmas presents – and even made a whole lot more of my clothes. I think my favorites were the clothes that she would make my American Girl a copy of. So that me and Molly could wear the same thing!

    The fact that my mom made me my gifts may not have been super cool when I was little, but now its a badge of honor!

    Oh and PS – when I gave my niece the kitchen set she was bragging that her aunt had made it šŸ˜€

  2. There ain’t no shame in being one of those moms! Before I was even thinking about kids I recall telling a friend how I was going to be such an awesome mom because I was going to make so much stuff for my kids! I did get a cross-eyed look, but hey I still think I’m gonna be a pretty awesome mom!

  3. I love this craft and have started making one for my daughter after I saw it pinned on pinterest. I bought fuzzy socks from the dollar store and couldn’t figure out how to keep the legs from falling apart. I am so glad I found your blog and that you used fuzzy socks too. By the way, I am also one of those moms due to lack of finances. However, I don’t think I would have it any other way. šŸ™‚

    1. At least it encourages us to get creative and thoughtful! I’m already planning all sorts of fun things to build this year. And I’m about to get started sewing her Halloween costume! Making things really allows the options to be endless. That’s what I love the most about it!
