Handmade Christmas

Can you believe Christmas is only 4 months away? I've already started to think about the gifts that I'd like to give because I'd really like to have a 100% handmade Christmas this year. With a two year old and a new born, crafting has been slow going around here lately, so I need to get to work soon! Here are a few pics of things that I'm planning on making:

I recently purchased a pattern on etsy to make these felted wool baby links for the little guy.


I'm also planning on making the taggie football from Grace Violet that I posted about here.


A portable doll house with peg dolls for my daughter also form Grace Violet

Those are the three ideas I have so far aside from a little purse for my daughter and probably some embellished barrettes. I would love to hear the ideas you're thinking about for your handmade Christmas!

**Edit: Oh yes, and I forgot to mention sock monkeys! One for each of my babies, and who knows who else may get one - I've heard they're super fun and easy to make!



P.S. If you like what you see here, I'd love it if you'd share!
