WW: Homemade Christmas Gift


Here is the blanket that I made for my daughter for Christmas. I was determined to get it done this year (only been working on it for 2 years) and manged to finish it up on Christmas Eve. This was all done with hand embroidery. 


What homemade gifts did you give this year. Feel free to comment and post links to ideas, just nothing quite so ambitious as this. I would love for some things to make with the kids as gifts, either for Christmas or other Holidays as well.

  1. What a beautiful blanket! I've received a lot of handmade gifts for my daughter this year. My mom's cousin knitted her some mittens, a few hats, 2 scarves, dresses, blankets, and the list goes on! I love when she gets homemade gifts =) Thanks for linking up at Momma T and Baby E!

  4. Nice blanket. I had every intention of making Christmas this year, but in the end ran out of time so many, many gifts made by others from Etsy.

  12. What you made is beautiful! I would have taken longer to complete something as detailed as this. My craftiness is making hats on the loom this winter. I've made 3.

    I'm following you back.

  19. That is so beautiful and I am sure your daughter will treasure it. I love making quilts for children. Most of what I make aren't heirloom quality - made to use and abuse and love! They can never have too many blankets and quilts!
