homemade gift ideas: for the little ones

with the way things are today, conscious consumers like myself are a) buying local or handmade b) making their own gifts or c) opting out altogether.

john and i have been blessed with many little sweetie pies in our lives who are too young to understand why we'd rather not buy them plastic junk made with slave labor overseas. so we'll purchase them books, buy them handmade, or try to make them something we think they'll love. here are some cute gifts that are inspiring me this homemade holiday season.

also, some felt ideas from homemade holiday 2010:



i'm working on gift ideas for the big kids, which is a little more challenging for me. i'd love to know what you're making this homemade holiday!

  5. these are really getting me in a crafting mood! I love some of your ideas and I might have to try a few out. I have a few relatively minor craft projects, easy stuff. I wish I could do more, but I am also about not putting too much pressure on myself.

    1. you make it with flour and stuff then add food coloring for red. not a good idea for you, unless you want to use gluten-free flour, which may get expensive!
