November 26 ~ One Gift for All

on November 26 | in Contests & Giveaways, Featured Creativity, Handmade Holidays | by | with 338 Comments

Make one type of gift for lots of people on your list with today’s ideas. (For example a circle scarf, stick horse, rice bags, etc.) You’ll be more productive and your list of must-makes will dwindle in a hurry. Many of these are great family presents too. One for all, and all for a happy holiday season!

It’s a big prize day… Don’t miss the giveaways below!

Today’s Guest Curator: Laura from Behind the Hedgerow

Laura was born in London (UK), raised in Florida (USA) and is currently living in Brussels (Belgium)… But her heart remains firmly rooted in the English countryside. She’s passionate (even obsessive!) about sewing. Behind the Hedgerow is full of gorgeous sewing projects, with interesting discussions about Laura’s sewing process. Laura writes, “I sew for myself and my children in equal measure and if I had to sum up my style in a few words they would be: beauty, function, color, texture, classic lines, modern design, small subtle details and clean finishes.”

Laura adds, “Today’s list is meant to help people who, like me, have lots of gifts to give to families with multiple children. Here you will find tutorials, recipes and printables for either a single item that can be given to multiple recipients, or items that are easily made in bulk and work best when presented as a set/family.”
