Homemade Christmas Presents

So christmas is almost here, and I don't think I will be making any more handmade presents except for some Play Silks (I will post later about these) but here is what I started making back in October and am now finished most of what I wanted to make for the girls.

Felt Board

I am going to have this present out under the tree unwrapped so they can see it first thing Christmas Morning. I have make some other shapes and seasons that are stored in ziplock bags. The felt board was made by purchasing some felt and stretching and hot gun glueing it around a small painting canvas which I got cheaply at a dollar store.

Felt Food
I grabbed these cute picnic ziplock bags and thought they would be perfect storage from some felt food I have been slowly making over a few months, one piece a night.

pineapple rings, apple slice, orange slice, strawberries,watermelon slice

Lollipops and Biscuits

Eggs, Pancakes with maple syrup, bacon, tomato slice

Doll Nappies
Pattern found here at Skip to my Lou after I saw some inspiration on Chasing Cheerios

Being Modelled by one of the many dolls we have

I made these just now after feeling guilty that I didn't have many presents for my 2 year old. She doesnt want nor need anything. She loves those doll bottles that have milk or juice in them that look like they are emptying to the dolly. I bought her those for $1.99 and that is all the gift I had her (we have plenty of dolls and don't need anymore) then after seeing the idea on Chasing Cheerios I thought I will add these nappies and wrap up one of the exisiting dolls in our house and now she will have a great present she will love. I am also making the play silks with her in mind and now I don't feel so bad :)

I also have been collecting pom poms, pipecleaners, and lots of crafty bits and sticky tape and glue to be put in a "Creative Box" for the older two girls.

I have plenty of bought presents for the older girls - Swimming Goggles, Tiny Pony collectable things, electric toothbrushes, paper doll cutouts, books, DVD,Hair accesories, make up kit .. they will be spoilt that is for sure :)

Absolutely amazing Bobbie. You did a fantastic job. What a creative way to use those ziploc bags too. Just perfect together. Love the food so much and those little diapers are always needed. Even on dollies.

Boy, you've been busy! You know, I still haven't finished those felt donuts you posted, that was about 6 months ago!

The nappies are a really good idea.
