homemade christmas presents..
this is kind of like the what are you working on thread but its for christmas. any one doing homemade christmas presents this year if so what are you making post some pics!
Heya! This is my second year of making Crimbo presents for people. Last year was a huge success, with people getting sock monkies, purses, stenciled tshirts, jewellry. Everyone seemed to like them
This year I am making more purses, a big cushion, sock pigs, more jewellry, doing some subversive cross stitch, having a poster made, doing some artwork....I tend to go a little mental
What have you got planned? x
that sounds great im not so sure myself yet but i know alot of kid things and some purses/wallets me and my sisters and my bro all had babies this year lol ill have to post pics of what i have so far
I'm making some of my Christmas presents this year too. Last year I made my Mum and sisters handbags, might make them another one this year too. All the girls in my family are getting either Black Apple dolls or Ruby Dolls. I'm sewing a surfboard bag for my eldest son, clothes and (hopefully) a quilt for my youngest son. And my fiance is getting a felt lowrider car...(now lets see how much of this I can get done before christmas lol) I'll also buy gifts for the boys but I think handmade is always nicer
I want to make X-mas prezzie's. Not sure where to start though... might make a piano bag for one of my friends??
I'm making Fabric jewelery boards for my 5 nieces.I've been playing with a mini Art quilt book and promised my 8 yrs old niece a necklace tree in the summer.
The ideas combined to make fabric pictures they can store their jewelery on. Will post images of the first one later.Also will be making button jewelery.
Last year there were sock creatures and funky knitted handbags.This year have a sewing machine so it should get a differant range this time round.

There is a pic of my niece under the folded ribbon (just for privacy)
i've made some scarves for my sisters, a crochet hook holder for my sister in law, some cool earflap hats for my brothers. making some apple and banana jackets for my mom. i want to try and make some ties for my father, also some crayon roll up holders for the nieces and nephews....... I decided as much as i can to make all my christmas gifts this year. they mean more then just picking something up at a store- plus- i'm kinda broke because we bought a house this year hahahaha i really hate how stores have commercialized christmas
I'm planning on making gifts for my friends this year...probably a lot of jewelry and stencilled shirts
This year I'm thinking of making me and my best friend matching bracelets ( so original, I know!) but I have got to make her something else too. I know she will love anything I make but idk what to make! any suggestions?
We don't have presents for Christmas, it's not a tradition in Holland. We do have a tradition of giving each other presents at 5 december. Children are told that the presents are given by Sint Nikolaas or Sinterklaas which is the deteriorated word for Sint Nikolaas. And Santa Claus is actually detoriated from Sinterklaas. We don't hang stockings but leave our shoe by the fireplace for Sinterklaas to fill with presents. So anyway, enough which the teaching. I wanna make some presents but I'm not sure what yet. Most difficult is to think of something for dad and my boyfriend or man in general.
My mother-in-law is from Holland..herd all about Sinterklaas..If I lived there I would hope to have big feet (so more could fit in my shoes haha) Ya making things for men is hard sometimes..Im gonna crochet my husband a remote control cozy..we always loose the darn things.
im making monster bares of most of the men and children in my family the all have a gient pocket as their mouth and have squerkers and patches they all resabell the people they are for . my grandads a biker so his is made out of black leather and green swade like his favrote bike jacket and has a chunk out of its ear and a few pearcings , my god daurghter has a light blue denim and pink with stroberys on and crazzy hair that sticks up . then most of the wimen are getting tote bags
Have made some sort of plan as to what folk are getting.....
One of my friends is getting a giant red tartan cushion, another friend is getting a huge cookie cushion, and the last friend is getting a handmade felt cupcake-with its own handmade box
Mother is getting some type of tree thing...I dont know the name, I shall describe it though a little metal bucket, with dry oasis in it, a pencil will be placed in the oasis to make a trunk, pebbles will be used to cover the oasis on the top. Then, I am getting a large polystyrene ball, which goes on top of the pencil (keeping up yet?!). Paint it black, then getting some black and red printed card, cutting out many flowers, then using coloured drawing pins to attach them to the ball....get what I mean??
Fella, for one of his bits is getting an ipod....not any old ipod, but a Snoo Fantastic handmade ipod, complete with cute plushy earphones
The fellas sister loves liquorice allsorts, so she is getting some custom handmade jewellry, all made from polymer clay. She is getting a pendant, ring and earrings. His Mum is getting a purse and a sock pig. His other sister is getting some music related handmade items...so things like a plush keyboard, or microphone...piano style pendants..
The girls I work with (4 of them) are each getting a handmade felt cupcake or muffin, each in their own individual boxes....
What do you think? Maybe I have thought about this WAY too much
