There were many people on our lists this year. moms, dads, friends and several children and babies. I thought I’d share some of the handmade items we made this year.

Got a traveler on the list? We did. And what better thing for a child while traveling than a pillow:) At least I was always hoping that mine would eventually fall asleep. We never left for a trip without ours!

This was a travel pillow set with a play mat quilt panel with a road scene backed with flannel. A great idea to keep that little boy busy on the floor with all those Hot Wheels!

A baby set including an Owl, Minky Blankie, Ouchie Bag and a Bag for the new mommy to enjoy.

The kids will enjoy toting their own bags to the library to check out all those books with their new Library Bags and a Color Book for baby sister.

And the last giftie is a soft blankie for baby made with a cute puppy panel.

Did anyone else out there make some cute children’s gifts this year? We’d love for you to share some of your ideas too!

I knew when I was cutting all my scraps into useable pieces that one day I would be glad I did all of that work. That day came when I decided to make The Color Book.

It takes 2-1/2″ squares for the pages, which is exactly what some of my smaller scraps were cut into, so you can imagine how easy it was to get this project going. I think I spent the most time on deciding which 2-1/2″ square to use.

Batting scraps in between the pages make it soft and flexible for baby. A little hand stitching and a pieced log cabin cover to finish it up and you have a handmade, unique gift for baby’s Christmas.

This is one of the many fun and inspiring projects that come from 101 Projects Patchwork & Quilts magazine, which is available at your local craft or bookstore. You won’t be disappointed in this girls! It’s often rare you find a magazine that has more than a couple of ideas you might make in it, but this one is loaded with them! And if you notice by the front cover, there are lot’s of opportunities to use your scraps!
