As always, our budget is pretty well stretched. I also prefer homemade gifts. So this year we are giving Busy Bags.
These are just bags I made from leftover fabric. Then the girls and I pack them with things to keep kids busy…crayons, blank books, stickers, plastic animals, etc. I got a great deal on all this stuff from Michael’s a while back, so we are fully stocked.
These are pink and white stripped on the outside, ad blue gingham inside, left over from Halloween 2005:
I decorated this one with silk flowers. I remove them from the stem and sew on with a button.
I might redo this one…I want one for myself!
