Now that some of the recipients have received their gifts, I can show you what I made.
Fleece jammy pants with adorable paw prints!
Eyeglass cases, zippered pouches (she has some great tutorials).
Table runners (search the internet and youtube, there are all kinds of tutorials on these). DMIL received the Christmas themed one, DSIL received the orange and green one as those colours, along with chocolate browns and bright yellows are her fav's.
And of course, some mice stuffed with stuffing and catnip for the kitties.
The kitties loved them!!
I forgot to take pictures of the Christmas Crackers, without the "crack", but they turned out great!
There are other pics.. but they'll have to wait until the packages are received in London, Ont.
I really love the idea of giving handmade gifts versus overly-priced store bought items. Supplement those with some good quality items from the dollar stores: cooking utensils, glass cutting boards, note pads, etc. and everyone gets items they need and can use.
