We are going to have a handmade Christmas this year. That means we won't buy any gifts for the children and I will use what I have on hand to make gifts for them. Well, that's our plan anyway. We did agree to stick to it. Here are some things I may sew for gifts.
*Pillowcases- I will use some of the fun fabrics to personalize these for each child. I may use the embroidery module on my sewing machine.
*Comforters or large patch quilts
*Nightgowns with matching doll nighties- my girls love having matching clothes with their dolls.
*Decorative pillows- hearts for the girls trucks or animals for the boys.
*I have a pattern to make a farm set so the little boys might get one of those to share.
*Stuffed animals- Here are some free patterns I found Bean bag animals, Cute chicken with an egg/baby in her pocket, Love bird with a heart and note in her pocket, Kitty, and a Patchwork cat.
*Guinea pig outfits and harness and leash sets for Nathan's pets.
I need to come up with some more boy friendly ideas, especially for the older(teens) ones. Please leave a comment if you think of something!
I'll keep you posted as I finish projects. I am still working on the baby girl quilt and as soon as I'm finished with that I have to make slipcovers for two chairs and then I can begin on gifts.
