This year, I made a Christmas decoration or ornament for each of my siblings’ families.
For Eric and Meggan, Noah, Selah, Jonas, Ezra, and Violet, a green tree garland:
For Jon and Leah, Kaitlyn, and Maria, a patchwork star with “Merry Christmas” in many languages, appropriate, I think, for their life right now.
For the pet-loving Chris, Katie, Addie, and Alex, a “Polaroid” ornament!
And for Rachel and Drew, Grace, Clara, and Gabe, a felt “ogee” ornament:
If you want to make it two-toned like I did, you have to sew two squares of felt together, mark the lines, and then sew on either side of each line before cutting, like this:
