More Homemade Christmas Gifts

I made this crayon roll for my friend’s son.

Again, please don’t judge my sewing skills…I’m just learning.  😀

This was an easy and very inexpensive gift to make.  I just bought a coloring book from the dollar store and put the crayon roll on top and then wrapped it with a festive ribbon & bow!

You can find the pattern for the crayon roll here.  I used a snap instead of a ribbon or cord.  I actually started with the cord but found it too difficult to get both ends through the tiny hole, so I opted for an easy snap instead.  If I make one for a girl sometime, I will probably use a ribbon tie.

And these truffles were very easy and very very delicious!  I think next time I will dip them in white chocolate, though.

You can find the recipe here.

      Thank you sister! I love you too. But really, my sewmanship is not the greatest. You can tell if you really look…so don’t do that!!! 🙂

    Great ideas! I can’t post my homemade gifts until after Christmas because people who are receiving them read my blog, but I can’t wait to show them all off.
