It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Are you getting ready for the holidays and beginning to feel the Christmas spirit? You may think I’m crazy, but if you make most of your gifts like we do, then you have to get a jump on creating because I normally start somewhere around October. Yeah, I know you have to think ahead, but it’s all good in the end. Let’s begin Handmade Holidays #1 fun.
I don’t know about you, but handmade gifts are my favorite gift to give and receive. There’s just something about realizing that someone thought enough of you to create something special just for you.
Take a look at this first week’s ideas for children and the child at heart.
Call it a fetish or infatuation, but I take so much delight in hand-stitching dolls, bears, you name it. My current resource, aside from my own creations, is a book called, Wee Wonderfuls. Have you seen it?
Filled with adorable patterns and beautifully photographed to make it simple to piece together your own handmade gift.
One of my favorite projects were the topsy-turvy dolls. They are two dolls in one.

Larissa these are so precious. Wish I had little ones. Maybe when I have grandkids.
Thanks, Mary! I don’t have as much time now to do these types of things, but one day I will get back at it. 🙂
