Mama to 3 boys
well, the craft room looks like it was hit by a cyclone...i am definitely in full swing and am making all my gifts this year.
I already posted in the toys and dolls forum under christmas gift ideas with a long list of fun stuff im working on for the kiddos. but i wanted to post my other gifts and links as well.
So far I am knitting the Steggy Sweater for my 3 year old son. DH is making him some walking blocks (for DS to stand on- like stilts). I'm thinking about also making him some mittens, and maybe sewing a doorframe puppet theater.
I love this R2D2 hat, and am trying to think of who I can knit it for this year. I'll also probably do some simple stocking stuffer things like coffee mug cozies, etc.
Oh, I would really like to make some wrap-n-mats... I need to look into a pattern and see what fabrics I can use.

Oh Mamas,I had a big old craft fail.UHG!I was trying to stencil some kung fu shoes for a 13 yr old friend.Did not work!I melted some of the elastic when I was trying to iron the freezer paper on to the shoes and then the freezer paper sort of stuck to the shoes.UHG!So if you have any ideas for a 13 year old boy...oh yeah and I just gave him a wallet for a party favor so I can't go back to my original idea for him.UHG!
OH NO!!! That SUXS!!!
Teenage boys are HARD!!! I'm stumped for my 16 y/old cousin. Bought him a small game as a joke...and I think I'm actualy BUYING the rest of his gift
Does he have an i-pod? maybe an i-pod cozy?
Funky fleece tie quilt? I made one for my cousin last year out of a kit, and he keeps it on his bed all the time
A quillow? I think that's what they are called? Those pillows that turn into a blanket
A bed organizer that holds magazines, t.v. remote? that can slip under his matress and hang down the side.
A messanger bag, with a pocket for cellphone, i-pod what have you
A fleece scarf with "pockets" at the ends for his hands to slip in when cold/another pocket w velcro for cell/ipod whatever
I'm at the thumb hole for my aunts fingerless gloves...now to just learn how to knit button holes
Hi everyone! Mind if I join?
I could use some help figuring out some gifts for a few people:
Nephews (age 4 and 10) - They are extremely rough on toys and don't take care of things. I want something that I'm not going to put a lot of work into that they don't appreciate. (I may end up buying something cheap for them, anyway, unless you guys have some awesome ideas.)
Brother, age 21 - College student, in final year of nursing program. Very "guy" ish, loves sports and beer.
BIL, age 16 - Likes to fish and hunt
SIL, age 17 - Senior in high school, very sporty and preppy, loves clothes and fashion. I'm stumped by her, because anything I think of doesn't seem good enough.
My dad - Very much like my brother, loves beer and football and Star Trek.
My limitations: I can't knit or crochet at ALL, but I sew. Needs to be extremely cheap, because I'm working on a TIGHT budget here.
I have gotten some amazing ideas from all of you! I am definitely going to do the tea cup candles for my MIL and step mother, if I can find decent tea cups.
Thanks you guys!!! This thread is awesome. I'll be back later with my own ideas to add.
