Free Craft Projects and Patterns

Good morning!
Have you been or are you going shopping today?

Not us!
I have never been shopping the day after Thanksgiving...unless it's for groceries.

We usually don't have the money to buy a lot of gifts for people so we make things.
In my experience people like homemade gifts better than something from the store, especially if it's from a child.

So, along those lines, here are some more links to free craft projects and patterns.

Thank you for the craft ideas! I am glad you and your family had a great Thanksgiving.

For Christmas gifts here, I usually give baskets of jellies, jams and butters that I've canned throughout the year. I try to also include a loaf of some sort of sweet bread or some cookies. I have also done the "gifts in a jar" thing and plan to do that for my sons' teachers. Russian tea mix has always worked well for me.

All the best to your family!
