Love Your Pocket
Homemade Christmas Gifts for the kids are welcome breaths of fresh air. Expensive gadgets, toys and clothes are appreciated even by their young minds but these gifts have their downsides. Your bank account will be seriously depleted so much so that greeting the New Year deeply in debt is not too far behind.
Here then are great ideas on Homemade Gifts that your kids will love to have during the holidays. You will even delightedly discover that many of these simple gifts can go down in family history as the best gift mommy and daddy gave! Why? Because your love was evident with every stitch, stencil and scent.
Felted Stuffed Animals
Probably the most eco-friendly Homemade Christmas Gifts are felted stuffed animals made from old cable knit sweaters. You will want a whole menagerie of animals once you feel the softness of the stuffed animals! Your basic sewing skills will be put to the test but for your children, anything is possible even learning a few more sewing styles.
If Christmas is a winter wonderland where you live, one of the best gifts to keep your children warm are monogrammed slippers. No, we are not referring to rubber flip-flops but to house slippers made from wool and the like, which can be bought for just a few dollars. You can personalize these slippers by adding covered buttons with embroidered letters, calligraphic letters embroidered with French knots and even just cut out felt with the kids' name spelled out.
Bath items as Homemade Gifts may not seem appropriate for the cold season but children will appreciate them, nonetheless, because of their cute factor. You can make cloth puppets or washcloth ducks from terry cloth towels, which will add fun to bath times.
If you have purchased affordable mittens and desire to turn them into kid-friendly presents, we suggest making them into monsters. Lovable monsters, of course, since your children want to be delighted, not scared, with your gifts. To make these monster mittens, you can cut out the features of dragons, lions and sharks from felt cloth and then sew them to the fleece mittens. You may also add embroidery and buttons to complete the ferocious look.
Polar Fleece Clothing Items
You can purchase yards of polar fleece from stores and online sites at very affordable prices than, say, wool. Your yards of cloth can then be sewn to make various clothing items like hats and mittens. Since these Homemade Christmas Gifts are made from soft, lightweight and heat-efficient material, your kids will love using them outdoors, too.
