Handmade Gift Inspiration Week :: Day Five

Regular readers will know that for my last freebie draw I asked all entries to include ideas or links to tutorials showing gifts that will be Handmade this Christmas.This week my blog will be devoted to sharing the amazing ideas and craft work people linked to.I hope you all enjoy it and I hope it inspires you too :-)

First up today is a tutorial left in the comments section yesterday, it was suggested by SwirlyArts and is a very detailed how-to created by TipTopToppers, showing every step to create your very own gift box ::
Jojoebi is another generous crafter who left A LOT of links *thank you*...she is certainly going to be busy making gifts for Christmas!
Her son will be getting a play mat, via PlumPudding's blog ::
Two lucky toddlers will be getting some of Jojoebi's fabulous felt food ::

and two lucky little girls will each be getting a mermaid doll, which JoJoebi has turned into a PDF pattern, I LOVE her hair!

she's also making a super-hero cape for her nephew...I'd certainly like to see that when it's done :-)
Ann and Sam are also very busy preparing for Christmas, in the kitchen making Christmas cake and Piccalilli ::

and on the sewing machine making Japanese Room Slippers from a gorgeous etsy shop which is chock-full of inspiring patterns ::
