Here is an interesting idea submitted by a reader about bringing a personal touch into every Christmas present you give. While I’m not a great sewer myself, I used to get hand-sewn gifts from my mother under the tree every year. There is something special about having a present with a custom tag that reads, “Made with Love by Mom” sewn into the label.
We try to make it a handmade Christmas every year, from the stockings to the presents – that little extra touch goes along way. And teaches the kids that they can contribute something meaningful that doesn’t have to cost a lot of money. A great resource we have for looking for free handmade sewing patterns & tutorials to find something for everyone on your list can be found at SewSet.com. An on-line sewing pattern search engine.
