Family Tree Embroidery Wedding Gift + Kitty Cuteness

Alex and I have been to a lot of weddings this year, but I only crafted a handmade gift for one of them. Sorry, all you other married people, but Kristen was the only one who asked me to be a bridesmaid and therefore earned her DIY gift.

You have to be careful who you give DIY gifts too, because some people would rather get a toaster than a handmade gift. They will spit on your handmade goodness, even though it took you hours and hours to make it. I knew this was not the case with Kristen and Rob.

Carson's Bear Birthday Hat

My nephew celebrated his 7th birthday last month, and I wanted to make him something fun that he could wear this winter.

I found this Bashful Bear Hat on Red Heart, but the hat was designed for a 4 year old. I was worried the whole bear face might be a little too much for Carson, who is already embarrassed by things like his mom. This might be my last chance to make him something cute before he's embarrassed by me, too!

If Carson doesn't like, Alex said he'll claim it.
