Advent Calendar Christmas Tree Ornaments

One of my favorite customers gave me the idea to make an Advent Calendar-I’d been wanting to get one for years, just hadn’t found the “right” one. Karen loved one that was a bunch of different little mittens hung on a line.

I had gotten rid of a lot of my Christmas ornaments over the years-all of the glass ones due to worry about one of the boys getting hurt. So, the thought of doing an Advent Calendar as Tree Ornaments was perfect for us. Not to mention the “teaching” aspect of it as an added bonus!

Each number has a little pocket to place a small candy (or three).  I made Christmas trees, stockings, mittens, presents, and Santa Hat shapes, of different colors of green,  tan, and red. I embellished each item with embroidery floss, ric rac, mini puff balls, ribbon, ultra cuddle fleece and white pom poms.

Snowmen toss game with snowballs!

These three little snowmen are made of cardboard-just like the box they’re sitting on! One holds a snowball-watch out-and another holds a candy cane in each hand. These snowmen are fun to knock over with homemade snowballs (the snowballs are made with left over batting wrapped around a small amount of rice to give it a bit of weight)! The great thing about these snowballs is that your hands never get cold, plus they don’t hurt when they hit you! How can you beat that?!

Handmade Felt Stockings

I started making these felt stockings years ago when I had only one little guy’s to make. Through the years I’ve added “Uncen Shaun’s”, and two more little boys’ stockings! These stockings are made by sewing a 3/4 inch edge around the felt in a red thread and finishing it off with a blanket stitch. The cuff is also finished off in a blanket stitch. The names are embroidered using a chain stitch, and the snow flakes are made using straight stitches. The representative snowmen/women are made using white felt and scraps of material for the hats and scarves. The snowpersons’ buttons and eyes are made using french knots and the arms and hands are made using straight stitches.  For your own custom personalized children’s items e-mail me at shannon@coffeycreationsforkids.com !

Christmas PJ’s and bib fun for Hampton! (Boys)

This pajama set is soft and comfy and made especially for little Hampton. The pants are hand made of a soft  evergreen and white striped cotton and have white piping at the cuffs. The shirt is a  soft cotton t-shirt (purchased from Target) and enhanced with a Christmas tree made out of the same fun green and white striped material of the pants. The tree’s ornaments are made using a triple french knot, the snowflake on top of the tree is made using straight and back stitches, and the framing of the tree is done in a spaced straight stitch. The t-shirt also has Hampton’s name on it in a back stitch. Hampton’s bib has his monogram embroidered on it in lots of french knots, the backing is made of a soft white cotton. The adorable Reindeer Box was purchased at Target and personalized for Hampton using acrylic paint and a permanent marker. I’d say this little guy is ready for Santa!

The matching red pants have white piping at the cuffs. The bib is the same red cotton as the pants with Lyla’s monogram done in french knots, the backing of the bib is a soft white cotton.
