Don’t miss your change to snag this “Christmas in July” freebie – it’s a fun, hand lettered, “Tis the Season to be Jolly” design you can use to make DIY Sibling Christmas Shirts for three children!
Happy Christmas in July!
As much as I am NOT ready for summer to be over, I always think it’s fun to get a little dose of Christmas in July. In fact, this is the time of year that I get excited about brainstorming and planning for handmade Christmas gifts. Yes, I know that’s CRAZY – but just hear me out. As soon as we hit September, I feel like it’s a slow and steady race all the way to Christmas. Things just get busier and busier, and my to-do list gets longer and longer. If I plan out some handmade Christmas gifts and even some other crafty ideas now (like these Christmas sibling shirts!), I can take my time with them and actually enjoy the process! And no, I am not one of those people that starts listening to Christmas music four months early – I just like planning way ahead ;-)
Our youngest daughter was born this past October, so she was only two months old at Christmastime. So of course I had to make our kiddos some cute matching sibling shirts! I’ve seen a few variations of this “Tis the season to be jolly” design around Etsy, and I knew when I saw them that they would be adorable for our THREE children! (If you don’t have a Silhouette or Cricut you could buy shirts like this from a talented Etsy creator here!)
I hand lettered my own version of the design using my iPad, Apple Pencil, and the Procreate app. Then I loaded it into Silhouette Studio to cut out the designs, and used my EasyPress to apply the HTV to the shirts and onesie. Easy peasy, and oh-so-cute!
Since I didn’t get a chance to share this file with you last Christmas (#lifewithanewborn) I figured “Christmas in July” was a perfect time to put them into a blog post and add them to my FREE cut file library so you can snag them in plenty of time to whip up your own set of sibling Christmas shirts! (And hey, nobody’s saying you *have* to use this design for sibling shirts – you could get creative and use these for a set of three wooden signs…three hot cocoa mugs…three tea towels…so many possibilities!)

i love your design! but is there a way to get it for Cricut design space?
Yes, the SVG will work in Design Space!
There are two links under the photo of the shirts – one says “blog post” and that will take you back here, the other says “download cut files” and it will take you to a link on box.com where you can download the SVG. I just triple checked and it’s definitely there.
