I always love getting reactions from people who recieve my gifts. So post what you made, and there responses Cheesy

For my girlfriends - I made cheetah and zebra mittens. They all loved them! A lot of them wore them around the day I gave them to them, in class, and I only got great responses! I ended up making 10 pairs of mittens, and than just giving others cookies, and all of it was super time consuming. I'm really happy they completely loved them!

I'll be editing with more in a few days Smiley

For my math teacher and her assistant (who love crafting by the way): I gave them each a small bag of handmade soaps as well as a small bag of homemade chocolate chip cookies and chocolates. They loved their gifts and were kind of surprised that they were homemade. I guess that means they turned out pretty well. YAY!!!!!!

My older brother went crazy over the Blind Melon shirt I made him.  He opened it earlier tonight and absolutely loved it.

For my brother-in-law, and my mom, I printed out pictures that I had taken of my niece's and framed them.  My bro-in-law was in awe, and my mom teared up.  Smiley

For my middlest niece I made a Wall-E pillow and she loved it!  (last year she threw the amigurumi I made her) but this year she hugged what I made and smiled really big whilst yelling 'wallllleeeee!!!'.

There are more handmade gifts awaiting tomorrow to be opened.  I hope all the reactions are as great as what I've experienced so far.

I made my boyfriend a Longcat plushy that was about 9ft long. I set up a ton of boxes with holes in them so he'd just keep pulling...pulling...pulling.. and more cat would come out. We both love longcat, and he was speechless!
I'm going to post it in the forum soon.  There will be pics. Smiley

Ah, yay!

For my grandparents, I made stuffed trees that can stand on their own; it's like 6 trees sewn down the middle. Anyway, she took them with her to sleep ( she has a hard time getting to sleep, btw) but when she had them, she fell right to sleep, so there now her comfort pillows! hahh. My family was in awe that I had made the, lmao.
