How can clothes for the holidays get any cuter? I adore this shirt. I think it will work excellent for the little boys and girls in the family too. I am going to make at least a dozen of these shirts because I have such a large family, and I know the little ones will feel like a festive bunch if they are all wearing this shirt.
