This is actually my new school year resolution anyway! So great that there's a craft-along too.
I pledge that I shall try and make at least part of everybody who would appreciate it's present this Christmas. And make small presents for more distant friends, and part of presents for closer family and friends.
I made my best friend an embroidered pillow in August, along with a satchel.
But since september :
Best friend from secondary schools birthday 29th Sept - made her some bunting for her new uni house
Make handbag for uni friend - 70% done
Make Dress for mum - got the fabric
Boyfriend's birthday in December
Mum - was considering customised mugs, evening handbag
Mum's BF - was considering customised mugs
Brother #2's wife - chevron oven glove so far
Brother #3's gf.
Aunty- Asked for a bag the same as I made for my best friend's birthday - seen here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=413394.0
Uncle - was thinking some funny computer based comic or something for his office wall, plus maybe a stencilled tshirt
Cousin #1 - ideally a stencilled tshirt with a christian quote on it
Cousin#2 - probably the same,
Lots of blanks!
