Homemade Kids Gifts

I had a TON of ideas of things to make this Christmas but with moving & everything I'll be lucky if I get the one or two things done that are top priority.

But if you guys are looking for some ideas for baby & kids homemade gifts here are a couple great ideas. Some are easier (a bunch of 1 & 2 hr projects) than others but they are all adorable.

9. kids apron dishtowel 10. car caddy 11. memory game 12. hooded towel

Does anyone have any other great tutorial links? Please share!

These all look great. But I am not sure I have the talent!

April- What?!?! You are great! Remember the Olivia the Pig PJ's. The lovely tablecloths. You've made some beautiful stuff.

So today I just finished my HUGE sewing project. I made a card table playhouse for my sister-in-law (we have their family's name). It turned out so super cute. We didnt have a pattern but just went off the one my mom has, the one I used to play with as a kid. I've been planning all summer to make it and just finally was able to start working on it. Now we're (my mom helped me a bunch) making two more. One for me and one for my sister.

Those are such great ideas. I'll have to save them for later.

Debbie- You gotta post of a pic of the finished product & teach me how you did it. I really wanted to make one of those but we are in the market for a new dining room table so I didn't want to make it based off the one we have now & then change. That'd be no good. SO COOL!

Those are great things! I love the car caddy, maybe one day I'll try that. My list is already too long. Lots of duplicate things to give to different people. I'm making dolls for Kate and my nieces, I've planned on making hooded towels for Kate and Jack (I'm glad you posted the link to the tutorial for the towels cause I like this one better than the one I was going to use, a matching outfit for Kate (matching pj pants I have), puzzles for Jack and nephews, ornaments for parents, and Christmas countdown things for my sisters. I have to make one thing overnight until Christmas... I hope I can do it. Everyone's been sick and so I'm exhausted by the end of the night.
