monumental failure.

remember that time i said i was making all of my christmas gifts?

well i failed.

not completely. but as a whole…i failed.

i made two things.

but they were the best things ever.

cue the most creative gift i ever made.

mom’s family
dad’s family
the plaid was my idea. i just imagined it. and i did it. you can’t find a tutorial on that shit. 
life lesson: patience. cross stitching teaches you that. 
make a mistake and have to take it out. like the ‘muffin-top’ i accidentally gave my mom. and knew she would be pissed if i left it that way. since she def doesn’t have one!
maybe next year i can plan better. and make more attainable goals. 
who else made some christmas presents?? besides chels and michelle..

  1. i #failed at that. but whit, these are awesome!

  2. That is really cute! love it. Great job!

  3. They came out great!! The muffin top is so funny! I vaguely remember doing cross stitch in school. Yeah, I'm from the country.

  4. I'm actually really impressed!!! It's okay if you have lofty goals. Better than low standards, right?

  5. too cute! can you make me look that skinny?

    xo the egg out west.

  6. These are pretty much THE BEST gifts I have ever seen! Love them!

  7. That's so cute!!

  8. Ohhhh my gosh. These are just TOO cute. Love the muffin top that you had to remove, haha. The only time that I've cross-stitched was when I was like 9 years old in 4H. Did you plan it out on grid paper? I bet your family loved them 🙂

  9. Shit. I can not even believe you did these! So fucking amazing. If I didn't have such a huge family (or if I had someone who might actually appreciate this), I might attempt it. These are completely awesome!

  10. That's hilarious about the muffin top! But what a great present idea! I'm sure both your mom and dad loved it!
