And Again With The Holiday Gifts......

I was talking with a good friend last night lamenting the economy and how its hitting our Christmas's this year. We touched on the fact that we both posses an alarming amount of craft supplies but haven't really figured out something to make for the kids this year. I started looking around the web and found a few ideas.....
  • I love how my mind wanders when looking at this purse.....it could be such a great toy! And what kind of felt or knitted creatures live inside?? Im intrigued and am anxious to explore this more.
  • How fun would this kite be to make?!!! Its a perfect working with a man project too! Imagine all the cool paper and magazine pictures I could use for this.....
  • And a fave for my girls has always been washcloth puppets. This pattern is fantastic and simple and the possibilities are absolutely endless!
  • Im also a huge fan of the Felt Food. I made my littlest a birthday cake for her birthday last year and its been a huge huge hit. Just don't make the mistake I made and give yourself plenty of time for a big project like that. A few great free patterns online are

Now to just decide what to make first.......
