11  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Christmas Presents..? on: June 28, 2008 03:38:52 PM
I have no idea for most of my family.  I guess I need to actually make a list or something.  Lists are depressing me though.  LOL

I'm now obsessed with making zippystrippys.  cant stop making them.

www.zippystrippyquilts.com 

No, this is NOT my site, but I just love making these!  The pattern book (in full color!) gives instructions to make a bunch of different sizes.  I can belt one of these out in 5 hours, including clipping and washer/dryer time.  And that's with 3 boys "helping" me nonstop.   Roll Eyes


I'm going to do my next one in corduroy.  Here's what my next one will look like (hopefully) since I'm going to try to copy it!  LOL

I love this quilt.  I dream about this quilt.  I MUST make this quilt!

I told myself it will be for my mother, but there's no way I'm gonna be able to part with it.  might have to make TWO!

Here's my first one that I made-- made in flannel in a Finding Nemo theme (my boys love that movie)
made theirs small but now wish I had made it bigger since all 3 fight to be under it at the same time.  LOL

great job!  If that's you're first project, I cant imagine what you'll do with practice!! WOW!

Of course, I come to the crochet area because I like to drool over the amazing work ya'll can do.  I am crochet-retarted.  My grandmother (who has the patience of a saint) walked away and got drunk the last time she tried to teach me.  LOL  She told me to give up.  HAHA!!!

OOOOH good thread!

I need ideas.  I am surrounded by family that doesn't like homemade.  But I'm gonna do homemade anyway, cause I'm a rebel.

Seriously, I'm looking for something unique that they cant buy new, that's appreciated and not get any "oh. it's homemade.  thanks...." 

I saw the tea tub things...  I cant find the original thread through the search.  I want to make some of those.  I bought some of those tea bags that are heat sealed, and I grow herbs in the backyard.  All I need to figure out is the tags/labels, instructions... 


Nieces and nephews are all getting art boxes-- will stock up when the stores have sales on their art/school supplies cheap. and put them in cute little boxes for kids.


My 3 boys?  No idea.  Done all the superhero capes, tote  bags, etc... already.

Hubby?  no idea.

Teachers, neighbors, co workers?  No idea.

Aunts uncles, etc are getting ornaments. 

And stocking stuffers.  thinking MY kids will get art and craft supplies from back to school sales.  Not sure about me and DH though.

ANyone got really cute ideas with pictures?  I'm a visual person.  Cant imagine anything until I can actually see it.

If your friend is going to be a vet tech, how about scrubs with animals on them?  Or a stethescope cover with puppies (or kitties) on it?

I have 3 boys, 5 nephews all age 4 to 9.  LOL

Homemade stuff?

They like blankets, Totebags with their name (or favorite superhero) on it, Organizing Boxes (like men use in the garage) for all their trinkets  (you could personalize it)

Another idea is giving them a disposable camera, and a small scrapbook to put their developed pictures in.  You could get crafty to personalize it for them.  All boys love photography no matter the age!

Is it a special mug, painted and fired? special paint?

Dishwasher safe?

Please give info.  I ave 3 kids, and they each have ALOT of teachers!!  LOL
