My four oldest boys take karate. I think Taylor is a green belt, Carter (?) is red, Jackson (?) is yellow, Mason is white. This year I decided to make karate uniform ornaments to reflect their current belt color. (Spenser gets the pink karate uniform and Sawyer gets the baby blue one.)
The uniform is made from felt. The belts are just ribbon. I didn't have yellow on hand, so I'll have to find some in a hurry or use some bias tape temporarily.
Each uniform is hanging on a handmade, wire hanger (made from 16-gauge crafting wire).
The boys have a karate tournament tomorrow. I was going to put them in our advent stocking tomorrow night, but our tree is not up yet (waiting for a birthday sleepover next Friday to be over, I don't need my Christmas tree flipped). I'm not sure if I can wait until next week. I'm so excited about them.
Every year we buy the children a dated Christmas ornament, with the hope that when they move out, they will have their own set. Last year I made some and bought them each a dated one. You can never have enough. Right?
Thanks for the birthday wishes for Jack yesterday, I truly appreciate them. Blogger has not been notifying me of comments lately.
