Husband is in Medical school + $900 plane tickets home = Homemade Presents for the family.....they felt really lucky I am sure!!
Despite taking a bit more time getting my Christmas list completed, I really enjoyed making my gifts this year. It is always such a fun experience to watch someone open a gift that you made -just for them (however hoping that they dont look too close to the seams...) In the end, we saved a lot. I probably used like 50 Joannes and Micheals coupons through the process!! Well here are the results. Sorry I posted them after Christmas BUT they had to be a surprise!!
I liked adding buttons to the front as well. I would loved to have added a pocket on the front but ran out of time. EASY huh!!! I got this pack of linen towels at Target for $10. 3 aprons for $10- I'll take it!!
Dad, father in Law, brother, husband- These guys always give me grief when their birthday or a holiday rolls around. Always so hard to shop for. Well this year I thought of a great, personal gift I could give them all. If you are not LDS, this document probably wont make too much sense but what I did was I got a copy of their Priesthood line of Authority, re-typed it, printed it on cardstock, threw a little ribbon on and placed it in a frame. They really loved it and half of them had never seen theirs. IF you are interested here is the email- email@example.com . Send them your name/ persons name you are requesting and your address. IF you are requesting like your dads for example, they will have to mail it to his house- but they can address it to your mom to keep it a secret!! I think this with a tie would be a cute gift for Fathers Day!!
All I did was the basic stitch cause that's all I know how to do! I am determined to get better.
