A Handmade Christmas

Now that Christmas is over I can blog about some of the handmade Christmas gifts that I made this year. I try to always make a handmade gifts for the kids and their cousins if I can get my act together. Last year I didn't do too well but this year I went to work. Thought I would share some of them. I really like how some of them turned out. Others'll see.
This one here was for my niece. Its a take-n-go Tic-Tac-Toe Game. I think she really liked it.This one was for my nephew. Its for his hot wheels. I know he has a lot of them. Its an organizer for him to hang on his door or I guess really anywhere. There are little individual pockets for his cars.Here is an animal scarf I made for my niece. It turned out more creepy than cute. It looked like a cute idea when I saw it online but when I was done making it it just looked creepy. I guess I should have figured out that it was going to look a little creepy when I had to cut the stuffed animal in half.Here's a little blanket and some burpies that my baby Nephew got for Christmas.
My mom and my Aunt got these heat/cold rice packs. I think I might make one for me. They smelt so good!Both my mother-n-law and sister-n-law got these sugar rubs. Here's another that I want to make for myself.One of the gifts I made for my kids was this. It looks like just a sack right?

Its a Lego Sack! So far this is solving all our problems with Lego's in the carpet. No more Lego's in my vacuum. All he has to do is open up his sack and when he's done well, just close it. This is making clean up so much faster and easier now. Yay!Last but not least my hubs and I bought Snuggies for the kids a few months back. They were on clearance for $3 at CVS. We bought one for each of the kids. To make them a little more personable I sewd their names on them. They are using them everyday and every night.

Well there's our homemade Christmas this year. I was lucky to find most of these ideas on the Internet. I wish I had more time to do things like this. Its was so much fun. Finding the time is difficult but I really do love making things like this.
