Handmade Holidays: Gifts for Girlfriends

Hey! It’s been awhile! After ten years of Handmade Holidays, we took a little break last year, but we’re super excited to be back. Since we’ve been away, the internet has changed quite a bit. For better or worse, fewer people are maintaining their blogs (including us!) and devoting more time to social media. Some people have moved to video instruction, and some are doing subscription-style websites or magazines. Lots of people are selling patterns instead of posting free. Whatever the case, we support our fellow small business owners–we’re 100% behind sustainable business models! That said, there are still many people sharing free projects and patterns, and we’ve done our best to round up as many as possible to inspire you to make, make, make this holiday season. We hope you enjoy these, click through, and support these inspiring designers.
