Homemade holiday gifts that are cheap, easy and fun to make!
Homemade holiday gifts are special...unique...and heartfelt. Making gifts by hand allows you to give someone else the precious gift of your time.
Let's face it; the economy has us all tightening our belts. But that doesn't mean we have to get stingy with our giving - it just means we have to get more creative with our giving!
Here's where homemade holiday gifts come into play. Making a gift by hand allows you to give inexpensively while exponentially adding meaning and quality to every gift you give. All the love and creativity you put into making a present makes it priceless.
Create. Make. From scratch. These skills bring with them an immense satisfaction. I feel proud that I can create something that gives another person joy. And we all could use a little more joy in our lives, couldn't we?
.................................Look at What's New!
An absolutely lovely (and inexpensive) gift to make and give to a little one in your life is a soft baby book made from felt. This book is perfect for slipping in the diaper bag to entertain a baby during a day trip or a long wait in a line up. Moms and tots a like will treasure the friendly farm animals and the embroidered details that you put on each page.
The eight-page pattern book includes the pieces for five farm animals: a sheep, cow, pig, horse and a duck as well as a 'Stitchery Garden'
that illustrates how to make a straight stitch, a lazy daisy stitch and a french knot. The Stitchery Garden also includes step-by-step instructions
on how to make all of the embroidered details included in my sample book.
It was really exciting to come up with this pattern and I know that I will be using the pattern pieces again. I plan on using appliqueing the sheep onto a plain skirt of my daughter's
You could also purchase this pattern and some felt for a new mom and give it as a holiday gift
. Mom will love the chance to make such a cute book for her kiddo!
