Christmas Giveaway Day 6

Our Day 5 prize, the Bag E Bottoms, goes to Blossom for her answer, “I’ve sewn a few simple tote bags, but haven’t attempted any handbags yet. These look very useful!”

I’ve been making ornaments for my friends out of scrapbook paper, curled and glued into curly hearts. They’re adorable and not Christmas-specific. So my question to you is:

What was the best handmade gift you’ve ever given/received?

Post your answer in the comments and tomorrow the winner will be announced! We’re already halfway through our 12 Days of Giveaways, can you believe it?

    When I was in Kindergarten, a hand print on ceramic clay, given to my mom.

    A 3 ft tall muslin country doll for my mom complete with yarn hair, calico dress, and gingham apron. I made the entire doll while still living at home. Had to sneak working on it when mom was volunteering at the elementary school. She was so suprised I was able to hide such a large project.

  4. I made fleece socks for all my grandchildren last year

    A fisherman’s knit sweater from my mother.

  7. Jess Ludwick says:

    I made a black and gray fleece poncho for my mom. It was monogrammed and had special buttons. My mom loved it because it was easy to wrap around, l0ng enough to cover her bottom and very warm for the cold Colorado winters.

    When my son was born I received a framed scrapbook page with a beautiful saying that was very appropriate to our situation (struggling with fertility/miscarriages). It also included pics of me pregnant and my ultrasound. Making it even better was that it came from one of the people who are closest to my heart! She made me cry!!
