First up, I bought lots of onesies and t-shirts and then appliqued them with the initials of the recipients, using scraps of fabric from my stash. I used a fusible interface to stick the letters on to the shirt, then painted around the edges to keep them from fraying. Hopefully they hold up in the wash.

link to Family Fun, where I got the idea. You can find the simple instructions there.
For the grandpas, I bought clip magnets and decoupaged the boys' faces on them. Easy peasy.
Last thing. We made cards for the boys' teachers. I cut out trees from fabric scraps and glued them onto card stock. The boys decorated them with glittery bits and bobs. I think they are lovely.
One more post of Christmas crafting madness to come!
