If you are like me, at this time of year you need some inspiration for gift-giving. I love to make handmade gifts, but have made my expectations a bit more realistic. The past few years I have not tried to make every gift by hand. Instead, I try to make a handmade gift for my loved ones over the course of the year – whether for a birthday or Christmas.

I think any of my tutorials would make great gifts – especially because they upcycle a favorite T Shirt or hoodie.  That would keep the cost down, too.
