I love to make gifts for people! It shows that you spent time thinking about it and also creating or crafting it. If you are feeling craft challenged, this is the perfect idea to get you going. I had pinned a cute scarf shown here (on pinterest, my current addiction) a while back and decided to make a couple for gifts.
The first, I made for my secret sister in MOPS. I found this nice, purple, maternity T-shirt at Old Navy for a great price in their clearance area. Then I followed the tutorial shown here and wah lah...here it is modeled by Krista. She guessed it was me a month ago. It must have been my crafty gifts that gave it away. Oh well, it was fun giving secretly. I also loved my gifts given to me by my secret sister. She even got crafty and made a nature photo piece spelling out my name.
The second scarf I made was for an anonymous gift exchange through Craftaholics Anonymous . This fun blogger matched us up and sent us the contact info in order to email and later send the gift out. This is a total surprise which adds to the magic of the season. I hope my secret crafter liked her new scarf! Here I am modeling it. I need to figure out how to take cute pictures in a mirror, like lots of bloggers do.
So...what have you been crafting? Merry Christmas!
