Biniam gave handmade gifts this year to his siblings and grandparents (he is pictured sewing some of them in the post below this). For all the grandparents he crocheted a set of pot holders. He made Emma and Isaiah each a personalized tote bag, and he made three bean bags for Noah. I thought everything turned out great, and was much more meaningful than a cheap store-bought gift.
Emma also got in on the fun and made little wreath ornaments for the grandparents. And not to be outdone, I got the idea to make an apron to give away, which quickly turned in to five aprons. I had fun doing it, but would definitely give myself more time in the future. Sewing at 2:00 AM is not a party!
