For the third and final part of gifting rundown, I would like to share with you some of the textile based gifts I made!
I made this wonderful hat for my littlest future brother in law.
I made it up as I went along but unfortunately was in such a rush to get it finished that I didnt write down any instructions. I do have enough yarn left to make another though so perhaps I will see if I can recreate it! If I have time that is!
Yes thats a teapot. Aparrently its a reference to animation (something my oldest half brother in law to be is currently studying). I dont get it personally. Neither did he. Oh well.
Finally I made these buttons for my mummy. She collects buttons.
And this concludes my christmas gifting round up! So what do you think? How did I do? Did you make gifts this year? I would love to see them!
In conclusion, Whilst I really enjoyed making these gifts, it was far too stressful trying to force myself to make everyones gifts, especially when it came to the teenagers, because teenagers are difficult even at the best of times! I am proud of myself, in the knowledge that U managed to pull off a non commercial christmas, and It is a huge confidence boost to know that I am capable of making so many lovely things. So perhaps next year, I will hand make some gifts, but I certainly wont force myself to avoid shop bought gifts completely!
