Stitched With Love Family Pictures

I'm excited to share some adorable family pictures today with some handmade secrets! The Shaffer Sisters have a blog series going about wearing handmade clothes in your family pictures. How fun is that? I love handmade, and it makes family pictures more affordable. Before I reveal, can you guess which items I made?
I don't have a link for the sweater. I thrifted it, and then I mended a hole and added faux leather elbow patches.
This fur hat is one of my absolute faves! It's adorable on Henry!
We did an adorable kissing Henry picture, but I forgot I was wearing lipstick since I rarely wear it! Henry got a good lipstick mark! Good thing he had his hat to cover it up!
All these pictures were done in 15-20 minutes because Henry's patience was wearing thin. Here he's already getting grumpy! I'm grateful to the Shaffer Sisters to give me a shove in the right direction (Christmas cards)!
