I FINALLY finished (well almost finished) sewing fleece toboggans for ALL the kids in the family (that's 12 toboggans). I saw these on Martha and thought that it was an adorable and thoughtful idea. Little did I realize, until after I started, that Martha has these little craft elves that work behind the scenes and do all the cutting and pinning (aka: dirty work) and she comes in at the last minute, sews one stitch and makes it look easy as pie. (No, I am not bitter) Anywho... thank goodness I started these in JULY. If you are feeling overly ambitious, here is a link to Martha's website with the full instructions on these beauties

Yeah, mine aren't quite as cute as hers, but then again, I don't have those nifty little hat stands either. They really aren't hard but I am an impatient sewer (I don't think that's a word) and the pinning kinda takes forever. Here is the Ramsey version:

For the boys

And the girls

And of course a gift is only as good as its packaging

Here is an up-close of the gift tag I made
