I made these crystalized ornaments yesterday with the boys…and even though it’s totally unrelated to sewing I thought it was worth a share because they are so.dang.cool. Perfect craft for my science loving kids.
You can find the recipe here (just water, Borax, and pipe cleaners!), or another great tutorial here. They are surprisingly durable and so pretty on the tree…just don’t let your kids eat them. ;)
I still need to make Sophie a stocking (yes this is her 3rd Christmas!) so tonight I’m going to hunker down and make one. Her only request was pink…red’s a dark shade of pink right? Right.
The stocking tutorial is here and now I’m glad I made it because I never ever would have remembered how.
Also on my making list are reader pillows for my kids backed in fleece (the one below is from Growing Up Modern).
I love these that Kathy made.
My list of to-makes keeps getting longer…and then I get distracted and stay up way too late making crystalized ornaments out of pipe cleaners. ;) What’s your favorite homemade quilty gift to make?
