For the past 5 years I have always handmade PB at least one gift for christmas. He really looks forward to it and it has become something special between us. As I preparing for this post I was going to put links to past gifts. Then I realized that I have never really posted them. Odd....So, I have decided to play catch up!
This year I made him something near and dear to his heart:
He asked for this Narwhal shirt as part of his new school clothes this year. He would wear it every day if he could.
So for his special gift this year I made him his own narwhal!
The fabrics I choose are special too. The main grey striped fabric is from one of PB's favorite t-shirts he outgrew a few years ago. If you look you will see all the fabric dingleberries on it from being worn and washed so many times. The black and white fabric I used for the 'horn' and belly are from another of his outgrown t-shirts as well. We tend to be sentimental over most of his shirts and save them for reuse (as seen here).
Because I am a thrifty gal I looked all over the nets for a free narwhal pattern to no avail. But! I did find a free and cute pattern of a whale at Wear the Ducky Tie. I just made a 'horn' up myself and added it.
