On The Second Day Of Advent…

I thought I’d share some crafty things to make for Christmas presents. Some I have made, some not. Just click on the pictures to go to the sites!

Over at Roots & Wings Co. they have a recipe to make your own vanilla extract.

Happy Zombie gives a tutorial on how to make these fabric gift bags.


Sew 4 Home tells us how to make Citrus Holiday: Bits & Pieces Felt Ornaments. I think this would be fun to do with the medium sized kidlets!


At Home With The Farmer’s Wife gives a great tutorial on using up hotel, or leftover, soaps and remaking them into a new bar nice enough for gift giving!


Jump on over to Pink Penguin to make the cutest fabric basket. I made this last year and it turned out wonderful! Easy to make and it is a great gift…fill it with goodies!

Last, but certainly not least, for today are some recycled cd coasters from Scrapdash. I made these last year as well using the same Christmas fabric as the basket above and gave them, along with the basket, as a gift to my Mom. She said the only problem with them is that she wants more!!

Have a great evening!

thanks for sharing those links.
Those Christmas ornaments in those fabrics would be so cute someone's tree who lives in Florida.
Neat idea for coasters.

I was just visiting your blog and was surprised with a picture of my vanilla post. I wanted to thank you for linking our blog.

Oh and you can still make the vanilla in the individual jars with the beans inside. Just add a tag that tells the receiver to shake it up every day or every other day until the maturity date that you provide.

Happy Holidays
