Do you have friends who, on November 1st, announce that they are completely done with their Christmas shopping? Maybe you actually are one of these miracle workers? Well, I have never been that on top of anything in my life. And this year, I decided I wanted to make most of my Christmas gifts, which means I am doubly behind.
BUT! It is all going to be okay. I’ve got all kinds of handmade gift ideas cooking up in my brain. And we totally have enough time to get this stuff done. Right? Right. So, right here around this little blog, we are going to focus on handmade gifts for the next month or so. To make it official, I even made a button (You can copy the code and paste it on your blog or site if you are really REALLY excited about all of this):
To get us started, I decided to go through my old posts and see what ideas could make great holiday gifts. Here’s what I found:
These are a great gift! Use your family history stories to make hardcover storybooks. The small size would make an wonderful stocking stuffer. I have been meaning to make more of these, and now I’m remembering how much I love them. Time to get on it!
Of course, a throw pillow is always a fun gift. I’ve made a few, but this felt lattice pillow has been a popular one.
How about a embellished tee? Or you could try stenciling this big bow on a bag.
Or, if you like to crochet, you could try out one of my free patterns:
A baby blanket covered in ruffly flowers? (She seems to like it!)
Or give my cozy buttoned cowl a try.
I’ve got lots of new ideas to share in the coming weeks! Be sure to follow along or like my facebook page so you don’t miss any of the handmade gifting goodness!
