Inspiration: 12 Gifts for Christmas

It's that time of the year again! 
Are you ready for it? 


No? Well, we're here to help!
We picked our favorite handmade gifts to help you celebrate this year. 
You read that right. They are all handmade! 


It is important to support other crafters and artists. 
Keep them in mind when you are buying gifts or just looking for a special item for yourself! 
Making a purchase from another crafter allows you to build a relationship with the maker as well as gives your item a story that is fun to pass along to those receiving or complimenting the item. 
(You can't get that from buying items from a department store!)

I did however alter the bodice to achieve the looser fit of the RTW outfit. I made the following changes:added 1" at the center foldadded 2" to the hemadded 1.5" to t…
