Handmade Christmas Gifts – Inspiration
Oh my goodness, we are about to arrive in December. I may have been organised about brainstorming upcycled decorations for our home but I still have some people to make gifts for.
This year I am going all out handmade (or at least trying to!), having made a few denim box bags (tutorial here), a new bag for my sister-in-law returning to work and a crochet cardigan for my niece I have quite a few people left on my list.
But what to make? Have you heard of the Handmade with Love ultimate bundle? For the next few days only there is a fantastic offer of 200+ patterns for a mere $29.97, which if you buy before midnight Thursday EST also includes a free Craftsy course…. How good is that?!
(They’re worth over $1,000!).
I found myself treating myself this morning, on the excuse I would be inspired for my remaining gifts (great excuse considering how many patterns I have already spotted which are perfect for me!).
Personally, I am super excited by:-
Cozy Christmas Knits by Jessica Bolof – perfect for those remaining gifts!
Slouch Hat Crochet Patterns (Vol. 2) by Rebecca Langford – includes 9 different patterns
Retro Rucksack & Penfield Pocket Tote: Two Essential Bag Sewing Patterns by Sara Curtis – a long time fan of her blog I am inspired to make er rucksack
Shibori & Natural Dyeing Course by Francesca Stone (e Course) – after my experiments with kits this year the idea of learning how to dye from plants is appealing
Printing on Fabric: Instinctual Mark-Making, Screen & Stencil Printing by Ellie Beck (e Course) – this sounds fun, and potentially something I can do to encourage creativity within my children
How to Sew Japanese Sewing Patterns by Rin Gomura-Elkan – I’m intrigued, it includes two Japanese patterns.
plus which Craftsy course will I choose???
If you are tempted too by quick as the deal ends soon:
This sale ends on December 4th! Go get yours HERE.
PS if you buy the bundle and it’s not for you (although I am confident you will find at least 5-6 products you really like!) there is a 30 money back guarantee.
