Handmade Gift Ideas Christmas 2015 Edition



Hi there! Its Sierra here! Christmas is coming! I challenged myself this Christmas to make all handmade gifts (except the ones from Santa) using what I had on hand or under $20 for each child. I started in November and I was able to reach my goal a week and a half before Christmas! Yay! 

Today I'm sharing what I made and the patterns I used. Maybe you can get in some last minute Christmas crafting in this week! :)

1. Mermaid/Shark Tail Blankets:
For these I measured my 3 children and drafted up a pattern based on their height. Its pretty simple to make your own pattern, but if you are looking for a great free mermaid tail blanket pattern you can get one HERE or HERE





2. Wooie Hobby Horses:
This adorable pattern is from Whimsy Woo! You will love the many ways you can customize it and what kid wouldn't fall in love with the make believe magic of owning and riding their own horse! Also, from now until December 17th, you can get 30% off all Whimsy Woo patterns if you join the Facebook group HERE.






3. American Girl Doll Apron, Chef Hat and Oven Mit:
The second item on my daughter's Christmas list was an apron for her American Girl Doll. There is an adorable FREE pattern over at: DayDream Doll Boutique that fit the bill perfectly! Its super easy and super cute! 



4. Mermaid Dolls:
I thought these mermaid dolls would go perfectly with the mermaid tail blankets so I whipped a few up from one of my favorite books: "The Making of a Rag Doll" by Jess Brown." Its a heavily modified version of the pattern but you can use your imagination and come up with your own! If nothing else, YOU NEED TO BUY THE BOOK! Its amazing! :)



5. Robot Doll:
My son is obsessed with Robots! So, I thought I would make him one to snuggle at night. I was inspired by this one and came up with my own pattern to sew up!



6. Baby Doll Carrycot:
My littlest one is crazy about baby dolls and loves carrying them all over the place! I figured it was time to make her something she could carry them in. This FREE pattern over at Sew Mama Sew was absolutely darling and just what I was looking for! 



 Happy Holidays and Happy Crafting!

Hi quick question what type of fabric did you use for the outside of the mermaid and shark tail?

Sierra @ The Blue Robin Cottage said...

Hi Nina! I used regular cotton fabric on the outside and lined the inside with fleece. ☺️
