Coin Purse Gift Idea!

Filed Under Crafts, Gifts, Knitting | 5 Comments

Coin PurseMy girls are both crazy about purses…. and lately, Jillian has been asking for something to keep her change in.  So, I did a little searching and found these great little Coin Purses!   You can purchase the kit to make them through The Maker Store .

Here’s the description of the coin purses from their site:

These tempting wallets give you a chance to knit the basic shape in a snap, then spend as much or as little time embellishing as you want. Their ‘mini-clutch’ size makes storing your essentials sleek and unfussy.  The Coin Purse Cubed kit includes three colors of yarn and three finishing options for an exponential amount of flexibility and fun! Enough yarn to make either three unlined wallets; or 1 lined wallet and 1 unlined wallet.
Finished Size: Approximately 5″ wide x 4″ high
From Pick Up Sticks Felted Knit Designs. Level: Beginner

Since it’s at a Beginner level, even I might be able to do it!   I’ve done a lot of crocheting, but not much knitting.  Actually, Jillian is the knitter in the family, so maybe I’ll let her make her own purse and I’ll make one for me and one for Becca!

Don’t forget Fido… or his owner!

Pet StockingI have a friend who has become very dear to me in the past year, so this year, I want to give her a special Christmas gift.  I’ve been racking my brain to figure out just what to give her, so I started thinking about what is most precious to her… and immediately I realized it was her dog, Kayla!  So, how do I incorporate a gift for her with her dog?

I found the answer! lol!   Blooming Cookies carries a large selection of gift ideas that include cookie bouquets for pretty much every occasion you could think of!  This Holiday Stocking is for both the pet and the owner.  It comes with cookies for the owner as well as yogurt dipped dog treats for your dog!  How adorable is that?

They also have adorable gifts for new parents, get well gifts and birthday gifts! They can all be shipped wherever you’d like, whether it’s directly to the recipient or to you so that you can deliver it in person.

Personally, I love the pet gift baskets! They have an adorable Cat’s Meow Treats and Toys gift that includes two hand pained ceramic bowls in a wrought iron feeding stand shaped like a cat with treats for both the owner and the cat!  I love it!  I could think of a few cat owners who would just be thrilled with this as a gift!

If you have someone who is hard to buy for and has everything, check out Blooming Cookies.  I’m sure you’ll find a unique gift idea that will thrill them!

Coasters…

Coasters made by Dragonfly-CraftsAren’t these gorgeous?  My friend Fiona over at Dragonfly-Crafts made these to sell in her online shop and they went like hotcakes!

I’m going to be trying my hand at it this weekend.  I have some cute material that I think would make very nice coasters.  Now I have to decide who to give them to, or if I want to keep them for myself! lol!

Our Band Boosters are planning a Christmas Craft and Home Show in November and I’m planning to have a table with some items that I’ll be sewing, and I think I’ll make several sets of these.

You can purchase the book, Bend the Rules Sewing, that carries the pattern for these  coasters at Amazon.com.  Enjoy!
