It's Coming...Christmas!

Well with Thanksgiving officially over and the clock well on it's way through Black Friday it's time to hang on and hold your breath because Christmas is on it's way.  With the economy continuing to force most people to pinch pennies and make the budget stretch just that much further, here are some great ideas for handmade gifts.  Remember when you are buying handmade you are generally getting MUCH better quality for a better price than if you purchased commercially.  Plus you know that someone locally made that original item just for you!


Koffee Kuffs ($5) are fantastic stocking stuffers or gifts for co-workers, coaches, teachers etc.  Just get a coffee gift card, slide it inside and you have a great gift that they will love.

These Koffee Kuffs are reversable, reuseable, machine washable and ecofriendly.  No more throwing away the paper ones or suffering when they run out or forget to give you one!

Re-Useable Sandwich Bags and Snack Sacks ($5 and $3) are perfect stocking stuffers and great for mom.  No more buying the plastic ones and you just turn these inside out and wipe them down.  If they get too dirty just throw them in the wash and air dry over a jar.

Kidpacks ($10) are the best grab 'n go backpack.  Throw in your towel and swimsuit and you are ready for swim lessons, cleats and shinguards and you are ready for soccer practice, some jammies and a tooth brush and grammies house here you come!  The top cinches closed and the chording creates the straps.

Great Gifts:

Personalized Christmas Stockings. ($20) Make every Christmas memorable with these elegant christmas stockings.  Choose your colors, and your inscription and they are custom made just for you.  Fonts can be changed as well as quilting style to make it just as you invisioned your perfect stocking.  The stockings measure 18" from cuff to toe and 8" across the opening making this stocking great for many many stuffers.  The stockings are finished off with a ribbon hanging loop.

Mother and Daughter Aprons (Set $40) will liven up your kitchen and make your little one fee like a true Sioux Chef!  Aprons are made to order in Adult sizes S,M,L,XL and kids sizes 3-4, 5-6, 7-8 and 9-10.  Other fabrics can be chosen as well.

Figgy Pudding Table Runner: ($35) This great table runner will compliment any Christmas Feast and get you in the mood every day up until the feast.  It is made from Moda's Figgy Pudding line which is quickly becoming one of my favorites!  This runner can also be made with the coordinating red fabrics instead of the blues.

Hand Painted Totes:  ($35) These tote bags are one of a kind and so much fun.  They are the perfect size for your lunch a water bottle, wallet and cell phone.  Or a quick overnight getaway.  They are machine washable and reversable.

Quilts Quilts Quilts.  Quilts are the best gift I can think of!  They are cozy and comforting and the person receiving will have something to treasure for many years to come and the will always know who it was from. The Figgy Pudding ($225) quilt features Moda's Figgy Pudding line of fabrics, great for the holiday season.  Mocha Madness ($195) is made with Moda's Mocha Meringue line.  This quilt craftily combines warm brown tones with cool grey tones to make it a sumptuously snuggly quilt.  Everytime I see it I just want to snuggle in front of the fire!
