Like so many of you out there, I am choosing to give a lot more handmade presents to my kids this year. I consider myself extremely lucky to not have kids that come to me with a list of toys and HUGE expectations for gifts. I’d like to think that some of that luck has to do with my husband and I, but sometimes the powers of peer pressure takes over.
I’m not saying I won’t buy them anything (I can’t put too much pressure on myself!), but everything we do buy will be purposeful…like, the slippers my son is dying to finally receive!
ANYWAY, I will stop being preachy and just show what I have made so far…I feel like I am on track and really excited for my kids to get their handmade loot.
Let’s see here is my list so far:
Sleeping bags for special friends (from Hillary’s pattern, with the zipper omitted)
Superhero (from the Purl Bee rabbit pattern, with modifications of course!)
checker board (from Martha Stewart)
More to come!
