Gifts Galore - You Can Make These EZ Projects - I PROMISE

Here are a couple examples of the scarves I've made. One is red velvet and green satin, very simple. If you can sew a straight line, wah-lah you've got a gift you'll be proud to give.

And, if you can knit, there's nothing easier than a scarf. I'm always making scarves. I give the best ones away.

Here are a couple other crafts I've made.

I made my son this farm animal stocking when he was about five years old. He still likes it.

I also take old jeans that I've outgrown :( and use them as padding for hot pads and pot holders.

I also take soft cotton fabric and make kitchen towels, which I wrap Christmas presents in at the holidays.

Just a few EZ ideas.

These are great ideas...I make hot plates using ceramic tiles...they are so easy and everyone seems to love them...

Since this is going to be a year of homemade gifts, I appreciate all the ideas I can get...Thanks...

Those are really cool, Kim. I love your scarves. I so wish I could knit. My mom used to knit me sweaters and I'd have the best time picking out the most outrageously colored yarn for her to use. I've always wanted to learn how to knit.

When I was little I got a Mattel Knit Machine machine. Remember those? You turned a crank and the machine knitted skinny tubes. I could never make much back in the 70s but I loved that machine. A few years back I ordered an original one from ebay. Now I'm always making long, skinny scarves. It's quite a sight to see a 43 year old woman using a toy from 1972 to make knitted scarves, but hey, it works! Maybe I'll put up some pictures on my blog soon. I just bought this cool yarn that's red, pink & white and I'm planning on using that for a scarf too.

Loved your ideas!

Your scarves are beautiful. I can neither sew nor knit...all of my sewing jobs go to the drycleaner or my mother in law! She is teaching my daughter, thankfully!
