So this year, it’s been my goal to give each person a handmade/created gift. I started a few months ago and as of right now have only a zippered pouch and a baby quilt to make. The baby quilt has been slow in coming because I wanted to find a pattern I was just in love with and that took forEVER. Seriously.
What did not take forever were the zippered pouches. I found this tutorial on Pinterest and used it to make the majority of the pouch structure and then added my own details here and there. I plan to use the pouches as a vehicle for the gifts too. Bracelets, gift cards, necklaces or a little note for each person. I’m so excited! But I can’t say too much on this gift… someone could be “peeking”! 😉
Liam’s handmade gift this year is a set a of pillowcases. I bought the kits while I was the quilt show in Columbus this summer with my mother-in-law. I used this tutorial to make them and must tell you that they are far easier than I had imagined.
Finally, I made up my own pattern for my Dad and Step-Mother. They have an eat-in kitchen and one of the things I’ve noticed over the years is that she uses placemats on the table frequently. I made a set of 4 and am packaging it with Whitney’s cookbook and this towel from Sweetwater.
Fastest, easiest Christmas gifts! I am so excited to give them this year, too! Have you made anything for your Christmas gifts?
