This year I have made lots and lots of gifts for those that I love. I love giving gifts that I have put effort into and that are personalized for that person. I wanted to share some pictures of my homemade Christmas ideas and maybe inspire you to make a few gifts this year instead of buy them all.

Homemade Christmas Ideas

This Scrap Wreath was made with bits and pieces of fabric that I inherited from my great aunt, a wire hanger, and lots of time. They are gifts for lots of people that I love all made in their favorite colors.

This little crocheted purse is for my daughter Katherine. I can’t wait to watch her fill it with all her treasures and cart it  around like a big girl.

These towels are made with a little bit of yarn and a dish towel. This one was made for my best friend and I also made them for the librarians that teach my children’s classes and other important people in our lives.
