What is your opinion about home made presents ?
I have made home made presents for almost everyone I have needed to give a present to in the last 18 months. both young and old...
But I do wonder if people actually like receiving something handmade, or whether they secretly think me a little tight !
I get next to no homemade presents, apart from when I take part in swaps, (maybe that's why I enjoy taking part in them), I would love to receive more handmade gifts as I think there is something special about being given something that someone has taken the time and effort to make themselves... but maybe that is just me ?..
I have quite a lot of birthdays in September, the first ones are for two of Hebe's nursery friends, one has just turned 4 and the other is almost 5, just about a year apart but they will actually both start school with Hebe next week..
I found the tutorial for this gorgeous Molly Monkey at mmmcrafts where you can download the pdf pattern, she actually has little shoes and a beret to go with her which I have not made yet..
So I have made this Molly Monkey and intend to make a second one today..
I hope the two little girls will like their Molly Monkey's when they get them, all packed up in a nice cotton bag with their name on..from the reaction I have had from my own girls, I think they might just, and I also think I might have to get on with making a couple more ! (Hebe and Clemmie turn 3 and 5 years in a few weeks)...
