What advice would you give someone starting this project? if you have a pattern and it isnt quite right, don't be afraid to alter it, in the case of both projects, i t took several times to get it right, but in the end it's worth it!!

Thanks, the economy is really turning this year into a handmade by grandma Christmas, lucky for me, they like the stuff i make them!

I've been doing handmade Christmas for the past several years, and though it takes early planning and organized effort, the gifts are so much more appreciated that I don't think I'll ever switch back.
