I like the thought of embroidered frogs, but I don't know if she would really want a pillow

How about dish towels? Plain towels are cheap at the grocery store or dollar store.

Now get craftin'!

Oh my god, that's brilliant!  She was actually just complaining about needing new dish towels!  Thankyou so much, I can't believe I didn't put the two together!  I'm off to find images of frogs!  Grin

I'm a fat, crafty chick. LOUD AND PROUD!

Check out my bi-weekly podcast where two twenty something heterosexual women (who act like fifty something gay men) discuss geek culture, pop culture and all things Disney, Doctor Who and theater.

I'd just like to thank everyone in this thread for making my first totally handmade Christmas a success!  I didn't get everything that I'd wanted to done, but I got a lot of great, easy ideas for last-minute gifts so I managed to give everyone something.  I officially love Craftster now.

Last year I made my mom a small quilt. I'm not a quilter, really, but sewing is my thang. Okay, here's waht I did. I made nine big squares all about 12" x 12". Three of those squares I had machine appliqued my old baby dresses. I cut the backs of the dresses off, saved the little bitty buttons and appliqued the dresses on. The little bitty buttons I sewed on randomly on other parts of the quilt top. It cost nearly nothing (less than $20) and she loves it. Besides, it gets those old dresses out of my closet and back into her house (hee hee). I matched the pale greens and off whites she has in her room.

I have to tell you what my half sis and half bro step mom ( I know my fam is complicated) did for xmas....SHe was going to make them each a quilt *they are in their 30's* but that wouldve been nice BUT She and my Mom put their heads together and .....well THe quilts were made by their step mom out of THeir baby clothes and blankets *donated by their  mom* and trimmed with  my nieces baby blankets. My brother though "that's nice.....OMG ! is THAT MY SPIDERMAN TSHIRT FROM KINDERGARDEN!?"   Was so sweet!

I've decided to thrift wool sweaters, felt them in the washing machine, sew them into a purse, and embroider cute stuff on the outside.  I already made one.  It had several moth holes, but after it shrunk, they disappeared and it looks great.

please excuse if I'm not doing this right, I just joined today and am still finding my way around here.
As for my gifting list, I've not got everything pinned down yet, but have some ideas bouncing in my head. I'm going to try and make socks for some of my family/friends. Some will get fuzzy feet (if I manage to felt, which with what I've got available isn't easy). I may even try argyle socks for my niece, in pink, since she absolutely loves anything pink, and she's made comments about liking what I make. She will also be getting (either for her birthday or Christmas, depending on when I manage to finish this) a Harry Potter-esque scarf in yellow/green (she's a Ducks fan).
The hubby is probably going to make jewelry for sisters/mother, maybe some friends.
I'm thinking of making beaded bookmarks, stitchmarkers, wine charms and stuff like that.
Another thing on the list of possibilities this year is decorated votive candle holders.
There's going to be scarves for some of my friends, I think.
No clue what to do for the hubby yet. He's always the hardest one lol.
I had a whole lot of ideas, but after writing these down, I find myself stumped for other options.

"just keep crafting, just keep crafting"

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

I think I will make these for those people on my list who I really can't afford to spend too much....this is fairly cheap and easy  to make and everyone seems to like them..I'm starting early though so I will have plenty of time..they are fun to make..

Victorian Kissing Ball

...this is my version...it prob isn't very Victorian but that is what I call it.... a little hard to see because of the green behind it...I used silk roses, and leaves,,,a few beads and small gold balls here and there, a few different flowers on bottom,,,stuck into a styrofoam ball...and topped with a red Velvet ribbon...and a gold tassel for the bottom,,,, pulled all the way through on a gold cord and looped at the top for a hanger... I actually added the cord and tassel first before I put the roses on.

You don't have to get it right the first time, just the last time.
