Homemade Christmas presents are something that I am trying to do this year. I thought it would be a good idea to go along with the whole trying to cut back on the commercial aspect of the holiday. What is nicer than receiving a present that has been handcrafted by someone you love, right?
It’s been an experience as I really am only mediocre at crafting and adding a baby into the mix adds a whole new degree of difficulty to my projects. However, I’m loving seeing gifts taking shape all over the house.
A sweater taking shape for Ruadhán.
Felt fruit and veggies (in a valiant attempt to rid the house of plastic)
I kept my poor baby awake to model a hat I’m making for a friend.
I have a long, long way to go if I hope to accomplish all that I’ve set out to do but I’m loving it!
