When I was a kid, I used to sneak a little package of hand-made goodies in my mom’s purse every Christmas and get them shipped to me as a Christmas present.
It was always nice to be able to make something out of your own hands.
But now, for the first time in my life, I am truly blessed with the ability to create something for myself.
When I decided to try to make some of my own gifts for my niece and nephew, I didn’t expect to be so lucky.
They are all handmade.
And it was a total surprise when I got the box!
I had no idea what to expect when I opened it, and it took me a while to figure out what I was getting into.
But I’m happy to share with you that I have made everything from a pair of baby dolls to a stuffed teddy bear, a homemade panda, and a baby blanket!
And the best part?
These are all made out of the same old, same old stuff.
I bought a few dozen of the smaller ones at a local Target store, and I also got a few handmade versions of some of the larger ones at Amazon, Walmart, and Target.
All of the items were hand-crafted, and all of them are beautiful.
Here are a few of the more unique creations: A homemade baby doll, for my nephew and niece.
I have had this baby doll since I was about 4 years old, and the only thing I have changed about it is that I am now wearing it every Christmas to give to people at church.
When my nephew was born, my mom sent me a handmade little version of the doll, and he has loved it ever since.
My niece loves it even more, and she has even made a few for her own birthday and Christmas.
A handmade stuffed tete-a-tete.
This one is so adorable.
I had a lot of fun making this one for my sister-in-law, who lives in rural Missouri.
It is a simple and colorful tete that is perfect for a kid who is new to the house and just wants something to play with.
It’s also a perfect gift for anyone who loves a handmade teddy.
A baby blanket.
I used a baby bag to make this one, and my nephew really loves it.
He has even grown into loving it.
I love how the fabric looks and how it is made, and now he can lay his head on it whenever he wants to.
I also love that I got a couple of smaller ones for him at Target, and one of them is even more adorable.
This is a great gift for someone who is looking for something cute and whimsical.
A cute and cute baby teddy for my aunt and nephew.
I got this one at a Target store in the suburbs of Chicago, and while it may not be the most practical gift, I think it’s a perfect one.
I was super excited to find a little box that my nephew had wanted for so long, and after looking through all the options, I decided on this one.
It would be so easy to just hang it on the wall of his room, but I thought it would be much more fun to make it a little more personalized for him.
A homemade stuffed trolley for my granddaughter.
This was one of the first handmade items I made for my grandchild, and so I am thrilled to share it with you.
This thing is so cute!
I didn.t expect it to be this cute.
She loves it and she doesn’t mind the little pieces.
It has a cute, cute, adorable face and head, and there are lots of cute little animals, too.
It took me awhile to get this one to fit perfectly into her room, so she always keeps coming over to check on it.
But after she gets used to it, it is one of her favorite gifts!
A handmade trolley toy for my daughter.
I wanted to make a toy for her to play on for a little while, so I made this one with a few small pieces of cardboard.
It does not take long to put together, and you will be able play with it for a few hours a day.
My daughter has also enjoyed making it, so you can imagine how happy she is with it.
She is very fond of the little things that make it look like it is making it’s way up into the ceiling and into the hall.
And there are plenty of little animals to play around with, too!
A homemade teddy-bear for my son.
He loves the toys and the handmade items, so it was perfect to include one for him as a birthday present.
This would also make a perfect birthday present for someone with a special gift, such as a favorite book or movie.
The stuffed bear is so pretty, and even better is that it comes with a big,
