Homemade Birthday Gifts

Ev has been invited to several birthday parties this past year.  I love homemade gifts (probably more than most people do, especially if by most people I mean six-year-old girls).  Each gift Evelyn has given to her friends this year for their birthdays have been homemade by me.  They range from embroidered felt birthday crowns to flower wands and hair clips.  I even made a small thread wrapped, bendable Merida doll for one of Ev's friends who loves the movie Brave.

I think Ev might be getting a little self conscious about the whole homemade gift thing.  Come on!  There used to be a day when every gift was homemade and the gifts actually lasted.


  1. I love the idea of homemade gifts. It's crazy that people think you need to run to the store and spend $20.00 every time there is a birthday, like my family does. I'm not as creative as you though. So please keep the ideas coming!
