12 Days of Christmas

December 10th

I am celebrating Christmas with Dutch by giving one small gift each of the 12 days.

I used this tutorial to sew the bags, and stamped the numbers before appliqueing them to each bag. And I opted for things he loves (read: orange Tic Tacs) in lieu of say, a partridge in a pear tree.

I gave him the basket this weekend — all the little drawstring bags lined up.* Each day includes a Bible verse about Christmas, and some small treat.

Mission accomplished: I get to give gifts (one of my favorite things) and spoil him (also one of my favorite things.) And he gets to feel loved during his first Arizona Christmas.


*The original plan was to pin each one of these to a piece of thick gross grain ribbon across a mantle for Christmas garland. Alas, we do not have a mantle, or another place where I could figure out how to make this work. Next year, perhaps!

    You should do a tutorial and include the bible verses.
