Sewn Gifts for Tweens & Teens

It's no secret that my preferred artistic/creative outlet is sewing. So don't be surprised that most of my Handmade Holiday gift suggestions involve sewing. ;)

I'm working hard to dig out some that are suitable for the sewing impaired, but here in Mootown we keep my serger and two sewing machines right in the dining room so I can hop on and off easily when the muse strikes.

Most of the projects I'll be featuring during the Handmade Holiday series are also projects I bookmarked as ones I'd like to complete some time. Don't ask how many I've gotten around to completing - please.

Today's offerings of Handmade Holiday suggestions are for the younger crowd - the Tweens and Teens, to be exact. This is, for me at least, the *most* challenging group to create gifts for and thus, the first list up.

*drumroll, please*

I also wanted to let you know that I read each and every comment that comes in! I want to reply to them all, too - but alas, life interferes. Please don't be offended if I didn't have the time to personally reply to a comment you left.

About Me

My Photo
A 40 something mama meandering through life an 8 year old girl (the big girl) who is a ball of lightening and a 5 year old girl (the baby girl) who brightens our lives with her smiles. I'm grounded by my 40 something husband and partner (the hubster) whose quirky mannerisms brighten my days. Our family is rounded out with with an eclectic 21 year old boy-man (the boy) who I hardly ever right about now since he's off starting his own life.

I've been a single mama, married mama, divorced mama, career mama, SAHM, and WAHM. There was a short time of my life when I wasn't a mama, but that was a LONG time ago!

I hold an AA, BS, and MA and most say I'm wasting them by devoting my intellectual capabilities and energy in the nurture of the wee ones that I've been entrusted to raise, but there is nothing else I'd rather be doing these days. :)

I love hearing from readers, so please share your thoughts and leave comments, too!
