Hmmm, make stuff to carry stuff.... I guess this goes here.
Ok, my MIL and BIL1's GF (whew, confusing!) are both into knitting and crochet. So after realising I had no idea what to make them for my Thrify, Crafty Christmas I thought of these:
MIL - tote bag and needle roll (comes complete with needles, hooks and measuring tape I picked up at the op-shop and stitch markers I made)
MIL - showing outside fabric (heavy royal purple cotton with metallic embroidery that she brought back for Thailand for me but I had no idea what to do with it)
MIL - stitch markers (gold craft wire with pink transparent plastic beads)
BIL1's GF - tote bag
BIL1's GF - needle roll (once again comes complete with needles, hooks and measuring tape I picked up at the op-shop and stitch markers I made)
BIL1's GF - showing outside fabric (goldish weave) and stitch markers (gold craft wire and green plastic drop beads)
I also have 5 balls of wool each for them and am in the process of putting together a cd of a whole bunch of online patterns that I have saved in pdf form (ok, I'm broke and the books you buy are so damned expensive and they only have a few patterns. Besides, it's only for a gift, not to resell or anything)
Also, the markers are suitable for both knitting and crochet.
I will update when I finish the disc and the tags for the stitch markers. I plan to wrap each part separately with a tag saying '#2: this gift goes with #1' or something like that.
Comments welcome, Eve.
