St Patrick's Day
Splash of sunshine for summer
4th of July
Halloween, spent $9.95 for this pattern. First of the spending
Last but not least Christmas
Sew what do you think? The Bride To Be was thrilled to have something special for her table for each season of the year. YAAAA!!
I wasn't trying to save money on this gift it just worked out that way. I started with a plan, and of course a list. I love me a list. I knew I wanted to make her something for each of the major holiday's but before I went shopping I shopped from home. One by one they began coming together during the year. That is until Halloween, I was stumped. I had lots of Halloween scraps but no idea's for a pattern. Don't you know I ran into the perfect pattern one day while at the fabric store, BINGO!!! Tucking it all in the box idea DD shared with me was the perfect finishing touch for this gift.
I think I might just have my new "Go To" gift for extra special Brides. Sew fun to make, such a frugal gift, and truly made from the heart.
If you are like me in that I like to make our gifts partly to save some cash but mainly to give something of yourself but have people on your gift list that might not appreciate all the love and hard work you put into it give this a try. When making your list of hand made gifts try sticking to a holiday theme for people who might not want something hand made around their home. Giving a holiday themed gift it gets your gift receiver off the hook of having something they don't really enjoy on a day to day basis. By sticking to holiday themed things the receiver can pack up your creation with her/his holiday decorations to enjoy only once a year a win/win for you both.
