The Second Day of Christmas!

     There's just something about hand-made presents that makes them extra wonderful.  Maybe it's the time and thoughtfulness that goes into them, or the uniqueness, or the quality.  Whatever it is, handmade presents are so nice to give, so here are a few handmade ideas.

     Fabric Flowers from Simply Vintagegirl.  So, so pretty.  You can attach them to a barrette, headband, or broach pin to decorate the receiver's hair or coat.

     Toasties from A Friend to Knit With.  Basically, they are fingerless mittens that are knit in one piece.  If using double pointed needles is something that intimidates you but you'd like to try, these make a easy pattern to start off with.

    Zipper Pouch from Modern Quilt Love.  Could be filled with small surprises.  Like candy.  Or little plastic army men.
