It’s Louis’ last day of school before Christmas break tomorrow and they aren’t required to wear their uniforms…so naturally I needed to make him something fun and festive.  Because that’s just how we operate as a family.  Louis went upstairs with me to my sewing room and we picked fabrics and talked about what he wanted.  I wasn’t planning on printing anything on it, but the first thing kiddo said was that he wanted something funny.  A little while later, we had it all figured out.  A dabbing Santa.  I mean, what could be better than that?

I’ll have you know that he was the one to place the final letters for “tree” on the design.  I am starting to get a little nervous that my 7-year old is about to take over my job.  Maybe more than a little.

As per my usual, I thought it would be fun to share the design with you fine people as a freebie.  We’re cutting it close to Christmas, but in case you have one more shirt you’d like to make…Louis and I have you covered.
