It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

I sat down and thought about it, every year I swear I will make most of my presents and the time to start making comes up and....
my mind goes blank. I don't know what to make. So I am asking my crafter peers and friends in bloggyland.

What are you making for Christmas Gifts?

I usually make drawstring bags, appliqued t-shirts, shorts, skirts and dolls blankies.
This year I'm going to try making dresses and tops for the little girls, but I haven't thought of anything for the boys.

I really want to make my Christmas gifts too but not sure if I have run out of time, I'm such a procrastinator. Anyway these are some of my ideas: hairties, hairclips, soft toy, bag, finger puppets, skirt, applique shirt and a simple set of pyjamas. Not sure if I will make any of these but that was on my list of ideas, I hope I've given you some extra ideas! :)

Hi, and thanks for dropping by my blog :)
I made doorstops last year that were a hit (in most cases).
Not sure about this year but may go the little drawstring toiletries bag from old damask napkins and doilies with some scented soaps for the kids teachers.

Too much!!
Last year I tried to make everything homemade - and neglected making much for my own girls - this year I am making lots for them.
Finger puppets, puppet theatre, wind wands, fabric belt each, twirly skirts, carry-along farm and cottage, blackboard roll-ups and hats.
That's what I hope to make - not what I will make I am sure!
Still whatever you get done is better than nothing.

oh my, what a creative lot of pressies this year!
i'm hopeless at sewing, knitting my pressies are normally food, yummy baked gingerbread, gingerbread houses, fruit cake :)
