This year, I have been making more handmade gifts for friends and family. I am still debating whether this was actually a good idea. In theory, yes. For sanity, NO. Here are a couple of my creations:
A puppy and a bear...
Complete with their own kennels!
They are made out of felted wool sweaters from the thrift store, scraps of fabric around the house, stuffing from a pillow I bought on clearance and two bird cages from the craft store (at 50% off!).
There is a reason I am showing you my gift creations-- Secret Santa is coming up at Bark City!
For those signed up to participate, I thought I would inspire you with a couple of ideas for DIY presents if you feel so inclined (tutorials are linked).... but remember: Do not sacrifice your sanity!
customize a bowl .
rainbow paracord dog collar.
Sew a squeaky toy....
or Make a memory ....
Whatever you do, I hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
