I decided last Christmas that I was going to try to give handmade gifts as much as I could next year. Well here it is almost a year later and I have been able to come up with some great handmade gift ideas to give this Christmas. I want to share my gift ideas with you in a blog series - hopefully one or more of these great handmade gift ideas will inspire you to make some gifts to give this year too!
All of the handmade gifts I will be suggesting in this blog series are ones that I have made and have enjoyed making them – the reason I am suggesting them. They are also fast to make and some are quite economical. It has also been fun making these handmade gifts and thinking about the person I will be giving each gift to as I make it!
Even though I love to sew, not all the handmade gift ideas will be sewn creations. I will share a crocheted scarf that is fast and easy to make! Of course many of the gifts will be sewn, like embellished dishtowels and handwarmers. The common thread with all the gifts is that they can be made quickly and are easily! Most of these gifts can be made in less than 2 hours, some in as little as ½ an hour.
I will share any materials that I recommend and any helpful hints I have found as I have made the gifts. I welcome any suggestions you have on any of the projects, I think it is helpful to get a variety of ideas and help from several sources. Just so you know, I have not been paid by anyone of the people who have produced any of the tutorials or patterns that I will reference in this series. All the gifts I have made are just ones that I have used and I love and therefore feel that they are worth sharing with you!
Watch here for a new post every few days with an new, quick and easy gift to make!
