Iron Craft #23: Let The Holiday Madness Begin

For this week's challenge:
"Halloween is over and so are the elections, so let the holiday madness begin! This week we’d like you to make something for one of the upcoming holidays." (Courtesy of Just Crafty Enough)

I'm not sure an upcoming birthday quite fits as a "holiday", but I also intend to make this project for a few kids on my Christmas list.  And considering that my birthday is in 4 days. Logan's is on December 11th and Terry's is December 29th, our holiday madness begins and ends with birthdays as well.

So, when Logan got invited to a birthday party and I realized that we gave the birthday boy a handmade crayon roll last year.  Uh oh - I guess the crayon rolls round of birthday gifts is over.  I had to come up with something new.

A little artist smock!

Isn't it adorable?

Logan picked out the fabric himself.  We bought some glitter paints and paint brushes to add to the gift.

I will definitely be making more of these for some other special kids on my list.  So cute!

And useful.  I'd much rather the kids destroy the smock with paint instead of their clothes.

Logan wasn't very impressed with me making him try it on when we was getting ready for bed.  But I had to make sure it would fit didn't I?

Such a great gift! I'm sure the moms will like it as much as the kids.
