Make them as fun and inexpensive gifts, or for  your own tree. I will be making a few of these for my tree today. ;) Enjoy!!

A Handmade Christmas Present Idea

I actually found these last year, and just loved them!!! They are called chenille ornaments, made with chenille rods, and tons of cool embelishments. This link will give you full instructions start to finish http://www.vintageimagecraft.com/christmas-chenille-doll.html  it looks so fun and easy I will definetly be giving this a try. I recently made a digital collage sheet for someone making these ornaments, and here is the link to that to get an idea of what either you can make on your own or purchase to get you started. http://www.etsy.com/listing/56134894/vintage-faces-digital-collage-sheet I borrowed this picture of the finished product from http://www.etsy.com/shop/scfq with her permission. If you are not so much of a DIYer you can purchase these adorable ornaments from her shop she's got some cute ones. I hope you can find some time for crafting during your holidays handmade items weather made by you or someone else are always special., and make great gifts :)

Recycle your T-Shirts!!!! Make a Hat and Pair of Pants (Babies and Toddlers)

I have been looking for more ways to recycle mine and my hubbys old tshirts, and I found these 2 super great tutorials one for a baby beanie, and one for a pair of pants either for a baby or toddler. Genius!!! I am so excited to try these!!! Both tutorials are super easy and only require minimal sewing. The pants come with video instructions which make them even easier!! And the baby beanie tutorial can be found here. http://www.rookiemoms.com/sew-a-quick-newborn-hat-from-a-t-shirt/
