Homemade Gift Ideas!

I have been loving the blogosphere's recent onslaught of homemade gift ideas! I have saved many of them to my bookmarks for future reference but I thought you might enjoy to see a few of my most favourite ideas....



Over at Little Birdie Secrets you can find a tutorial for these great 'Fish in a bag' Soaps! I think they are an absolutely brilliant idea! Something you could whip up quite easily for the kiddies in your life - or even an adult! I know I would love it : )

There is this divine body scrub if you check out The Tip Spot! The pictures alone make me want to run a nice warm bath and soak (for hours!). Ha, what am I thinking?! The last time I had a bath was (literally) about 2 years ago! But it would make a great pressie for a special recipient.

Head to Angry Chicken to see how to make this beautiful Lip Balm. I am hanging to get to Canberra next weekend to get the ingredients for this. Sadly our local area does not stock most of these things - well really, would you expect them to?!

Dollar Store Crafts has a great little tutorial for stamping a onesie. This idea can also be used on other fabric projects as well!

One of my favourite blogs, Ric-Rac, has a terrific tute for making a 'one hour bag'. Simple, easy and fast - great gift idea.

This idea over at Atomic Shrimp is just brilliant! What a great idea to re-use a soft drink can. We collect them here to give to Brett's dad who then takes them swap for money. Great idea but sorry 'Pop' - your going to be a few short this time.....

Lastly, I love this idea for a Collapsible Bucket that I found at Instructables.com. I can think of a million uses for this bucket and I just have to have one - or make one I should say. I can think of a few other people that might like this for Christmas too!

Hope you enjoyed this little post! For more great ideas make sure you head over to One Pretty Thing...A hive of SUPER great ideas to be found there - I {heart} One Pretty Thing!

Check back, after I have caught up on the dreaded house work I plan on a more personal post. Lots of sewing went on on my weekend in Canberra. I even made a Train Softie! (by request)

Also, I am planning a Give Away! Not sure yet when, but it will definitely be before 150 posts!
