Holiday Goodies #7

Winter Wonderland! The weather outside is chilly, and I've got blankets within reach throughout our house.  I love getting all cozied-up and listening to Christmas songs and sipping hot cocoa.  I love this time of year!

I've been trying to gather all of my ideas and make gifts for my family.  Check out this cool, free pattern I found: Chapstick/Lip Balm Holders by Kristy Ashmore!  She is offering it for personal use, so don't sell the finished product (you can buy them from her on Etsy, here). 

Another project that I'm thinking about is the crocheted bath poof.  These things used to cost a dollar at the store, but now they are more like 2 dollars or more!  Wouldn't that be neat to make your own?  Or another idea is to bundle items to make a bath gift set and include a handmade poof!  The pattern is Bath Puff by Priscilla Hewitt.


One more cute idea for the crochet-gifter is the Donut Pin Cushion by Nevadamama.  What a cute gift for your sewing friends and family that really lets people know that you think they are sweet.  Include a couple of pins when gifting so that they will know that it's a pin cushion; they really look like sprinkles on top!  This gift is great for giving away since it won't spoil or add more calories. :)
