Homemade Christmas - Links!

Here are some links I have to share with you right now for ideas from across the web!

Not Made in China - a blog post that has some great links on ideas/instructions/etc. I do believe some of these ideas will end up on my list!

Handmade Toys - an article from Mothering Magazine that is just a nice read and has a few ideas at the end of it!

Flannel board instructions - hey, these look easy enough to follow and I enjoyed having a flannel board when I was a little one! - a collection of how-to's that you can look through - there are all sorts of ideas there! (Some of them even have links to etsy stores if you don't want to make the things yourself - which I just might have to utilize for some of my gifts!)

Tummy Time Blanket - hey, this is a great idea to use even when it's not Christmas!

Jacob's Ladder - I see this still being sold in stores, but here are the (free!) directions to make it yourself. I'm not good with wood myself but I think even I could make this.

You Can Make This! - a website to purchase patterns that are ready for immediate down-loading!

Doll Clothes Patterns - these clothes would be lovely for a little one who really is into playing with dolls!

I will expand this list as I find, or as you share, more great ideas!

Don't forget, this list is also over at group I started as well =)


  1. This is great! I'm bookmarking this post so I can come back to it later.

    I have two things on my blog at the moment that would work for young children. They would be great stocking stuffers too.

    Create Your Own - Child's Sewing Card

    Hand Stamped Memory Game Fot Children


Seeing your comments makes me smile! Thank you so much =)
