Need Inspiration?

How is your Operation Handmade Holiday going ? Be honest…

Yeah, mine not so good either. It’s ok! ( I have been trying to tame a crying baby all day.) I did make a hat though. Check it out at the ROBAY STUDIO blog tomorrow. I’ll come back and put up a link.

In any case we need some inspiration in our lives! SewMamaSew one of my fav blogs also has Handmade Holidays as a campaign on their site. They are offering dozens of the best tutorials for FREE! Some even include patterns 🙂 Be sure to check it out.

This is one of my favs from green is the new blue:

Operation Handmade Holiday!

IMG_2323Operation Handmade Holiday has begun! As I prepare for the holidays this year  I  am taking the pledge to make more gifts than ever before.Yes you can go to a store and BUY things, but isn’t it better to make them ? More personalized and of course cheaper!

I will be chronicling my handmade travels on both  this blog as well as the ROBAY STUDIO blog as well . From soaps to crocheted ornaments ( pictured  to the right)  we will be making lots of gifty items for everyone on your list.

Quick Tip: I usually start by making a list of everyone on my ‘nice’ list 😉  I then sort them by groups, families, single folks, work buddies, kids etc. If you have 5 kids to buy for ask yourself, can I make them all something similar, say crayon roll ups or smock aprons ?  Lots of ladies to buy for  this year? If making soaps and spa gifts try bigger batches to save time!
