Recently one of my sister-in- laws (my husband’s sister) had her 60th birthday. I sent her 60 items plus one to grow on. A made a few items and I thought I would share them with you.
First here is an overall picture of all 61 items.
I made her a money rose and a spa cloth.
I covered a mini composition book (4.5” by 3.25”) with stiches on white aida and a regular composition book with fabric and stitched her initials on evenweave and sewed it on the fabric.
I made a Swedish weaving bookmark, felt coasters and a pocket tissue holder. By now you may see a trend and purple is her favorite color.
Here is a microwave potato baker.
I thought something that said “It’s a Girl” would be cute (and chocolate never hurts).
I make her a project bag and put the materials and instructions for a crochet project inside (she recently took up crochet).
Here is a sewing kit I made open and closed.
She is a tea drinker so I made her a tea wallet (here it is closed and open).
Here is a close up of the mini notebook again showing the front and the back.
What a lovely idea! You always need to leave room for "one to grow on" but usually I add that to the total number of birthday spankings. Oh gosh...I think I've said too much......
What a wonderful idea :)
Beautiful hand made gifts. Such a fab idea! :)
What a super cute idea! I might have to steal that idea for an upcoming birthday.
What a wonderful idea! So many lovely gifts.
How thoughtful - and useful!!!! I'll bet you're her favorite sister-in-law!!!!
A sweet and thoughtful gift! You are too clever...I'd have run out of ideas at 5!
I'm with daffycat - there is no way that I would have been able to come up with 60 things, but it's a nice thing to consider - I've been wondering how to celebrate my mum's 70th birthday next January - this gives me time to think about what to do!
