I thought I'd be really clever and make Christmas-tree ornaments for Ellie's teachers from drawings that she made. They came out coaster-sized...who doesn't need one Christmas coaster...you know, for your mug of coffee Christmas morning?
I have some tracing paper and one of those old-school tracing wheels (think tiny pizza cutter), so I transferred a little drawing of Ellie's onto an Osnaburg-esque fabric and embroidered it. Those are Ellie's pigtails atop her head! She used to draw me with two pigtails, too, but now I get one big, dark line coming out of the side of my head. Clark's hair is a series of short lines on top of his head. It's wild to watch her develop this great artistic style.
Anyway, doing this was really easy -- anyone can do it. Obviously you could gussy up the background, etc., if you had more than an hour to do three of them the night before they needed to be delivered. Draw your own stick figures and make a pin for your jacket!
