Buy Handmade: Holiday Gift #1


I took the handmade pledge this year and am having a blast holiday shopping on Etsy! I am too poor (sob!!) to buy something for everyone I know, so I will have to make a ton of gifts myself, but I have been shopping like crazy and I want to share everything with you!

Merry Christmas, Baby Annelie!!


This is Uma the Pig, Annelie's first stuffed animal. I can not believe that she is already nine and a half months and doesn't have her own stuffed animal yet, but Gracie has about a hundred so I didn't ever think to buy one for Annelie. Hopefully Uma will be her little lovey and her tea party companion for years to come.

I bought this little piggie from Bit of Whimsy Primitives which you can find on Etsy at http://www.bitofwhimsyprims.etsy.com

You can find a wonderful selection of darling little fabric and chenille loveys as well as patterns to make your own. In addition to buying Uma for Annelie, I bought the patterns to make these monkeys and this primitive rag doll. I can't wait to get started once the craziness of the holidays is over!!



I'll post more of my handmade holiday gifts soon!
