Do you have that one person on your gift list that is so hard to buy for and on top of that, they have EVERYTHING! There is one thing that they do not own and that is a handmade, one-of-a-kind gift from you. Not only will this be a gift from the heart, it will be a gift from someone they love. Most people know how much work goes into a handmade gift so it is appreciated that much more. Personally it gives me a sense of accomplishment and a feeling of happiness to see their enjoyment. That is my gift to me.
I have compiled a list of DIY gift ideas to help you get started. It includes designs for adults, teens, kids/babies and home decor. All of these designs are easy in skill so they should work up rather quickly. Keep in mind that most patterns for adults and teens will fit all. Go to RedHeart.com if you do not find something that fits your need here. There are over 2500 free patterns to choose from.
