Several of the things I made were requests or suggestions, and a few I had to come up with because the recipients were being most unhelpful ("I have no ideas. I just want to get rid of stuff"). I didn't wait until the last minute to get started, but I was definitely finishing at nearly the last mintute.
Without further ado, here are 2010's homemade christmas gifts.
|wristers - great for carpenters!|
|origami-style organizer. |
it's a bit bigger than I thought it would be, but she loved it!
|quilted laptop case, complete with a hula girl flap.|
|apron, with towel pocket. |
(apparently I don't know how to get the photo to orient in the proper direction)
|apron, with towel pocket, and ribbon trim|
(again with the sideways photo. my bad.)
|fleece vest, in bright orange (and kind of big) to wear |
during hunting season over his jacket
|record bowls. easiest re-purpose in the world. seriously.|
|knit christmas pickle ornament!|
|fudge sauce!! |
we actually did homemade crafting sessions at school
the day before vacation.
I conveniently helped supervise the fudge sauce
(and recycled felt wool ornament) group.
All in all, it was a good christmas!
