    The greatest handmade gift I’ve ever received was a beautiful wooden memory box that my FIL made for me. I use it to keep all of the things we received when our daughter was born. i.e. congratulations cards, our hospital bracelets, her little hat & jumper from the hospital, etc

For the backing , it is all 1.5 inch scrap squares all pieced together and then hand quilted…you can see the love she had for sewing in every stitch , it is so beautiful..

  14. Shay November 8, 2013 at 7:16 am #

    My favorite handmade gift is ANYTHING. I would MUCH rather have something handmade than store bought. It just means so much more to me, to have someone put thought and creativity into a gift. I feel the same when GIVING gifts πŸ™‚

  15. Dianna November 8, 2013 at 7:17 am #

    when my son was in PRE-K he made an ornament with his hand print on it and a sweet poem attached about my little handprints, I cry EVERY SINGLE YEAR (tearing up now) when I get it out. I hate to see the day it breaks :'(

    I don’t think I’ve ever actually received a handmade gift. πŸ™

  30. Trina O'Neil November 8, 2013 at 7:56 am #

    I am so excited for this giveaway. I am fairly new to the whole sewing thing and I can’t wait till I get my DIY office Make-Over done. I have to say that it has been awhile since I ran a sewing machine because I do most everything by hand. But this website and other SEW amazing websites have inspired me like no other to get the creative thoughts flowing again. My first project is to make curtains for my office. After that it will be making organization items for my purse and carry bag for Avon.

  31. Carol W. November 8, 2013 at 8:01 am #

    A quilt that was made by my Uncle’s Great Aunt. So beautiful and made with such love!

  34. Lisa Welch November 8, 2013 at 8:02 am #

    My absolute favorite handmade gift that I’ve ever received is a baby blanket that my aunt made for me when I was born. My mother saved it for me, I used it with all five of my children, and am now using it with my first grandchild.
    I’m so glad that it is white, well sort of white anyway, after all these years it’s more like buttercream icing white LOL

  35. Megan November 8, 2013 at 8:03 am #

    My aunt made me a baby blanket when I was born, I later named it Cape Cod blanket and much like Linus from peanuts, it went everywhere with me!

  36. Mandy November 8, 2013 at 8:04 am #

    Fav homemade gift was a big, wooden dollhouse when I was about 10 years old. My grandpa made them for my sisters and I, and we got to decorate the insides with wallpaper and carpet scraps.

  41. Katie November 8, 2013 at 8:17 am #

    Oh my good heavens. This would be beyond amazing! I’m just barely starting to teach myself to sew, and this would be so great to win!

    • Katie November 8, 2013 at 8:21 am #

      The greatest handmade gift that I ever received was a quilt my mother had made before she passed away for when I had my first baby girl. I had my daughter back in the end of July this past year, and my moms best friend gave me the quilt before she was born. It was probably the most touching and heartfelt gift I had ever received.

  42. Tammy Stephens November 8, 2013 at 8:18 am #

    Wonderful package!

  43. Heather Neibaur November 8, 2013 at 8:24 am #

    Anything handmade from my great grandma would be my favorite. She did tatting and crocheting, and everything I’ve received from her is just priceless.

  44. Jessica November 8, 2013 at 8:30 am #

    The best homemade gift I’ve ever received was a knitted hat and scarf from my college roommate!

  45. Susan November 8, 2013 at 8:34 am #

    The most thrilling handmade gift ever was one that I gave, not received….

    For Christmas one year, my brother and I teamed up to design a whole guest bedroom look for our mom, to do a room makeover for her. I made my first ever (lined!) drapes and some gorgeous pillow covers in the Aviary 2 birds collection in mustard and gray. We found artwork (I even made some with fabric remnants!) plus everything else to pull the whole room together for her, and the look on her face was priceless! (AND I get to enjoy that room when I visit her, lol!)

  46. Amy November 8, 2013 at 8:37 am #

    For Christmas last year my mom made me a blanket made of all my old high school t-shirts with a soft fleece backing. I love to cuddle up with it on the sofa and run my hands over the memories.

  47. Rhonda November 8, 2013 at 8:41 am #

    I received a handmade quilt from my grandmother when I got married…always think of her when I see it!

  52. Jennifer Oster November 8, 2013 at 8:49 am #

    My favorite homemade gift was the quilt my Grandmother gave me one Christmas. She spent an entire year making quilts for every one of her 18 grandchildren.

  53. Kristi Larson November 8, 2013 at 8:53 am #

    My mom makes blankets every so often. It usually takes her years to finish them once they are started because life gets in the way but when they are finished, they are loved until they are threadbare!

  54. Mary Jo November 8, 2013 at 8:56 am #

    My favorite handmade gift was a Christmas bulb my son made me in 4th grade … and pretty much anything made for me by my kids. But aside from that, my friend made me a magnetic scrapbook page that is ah-MAZ-ing! It almost made me cry. Have a great day!

    Beautiful scarf knitted by my beautiful niece!

  59. Jenna November 8, 2013 at 9:04 am #

    My mom made a blanket for me in 5th grade. At 28, I still sleep with it even with my husband laughing at me. She saved enough of the material that I’m going to make one for my little girl for when she gets here in March.

  60. Linda W November 8, 2013 at 9:09 am #

    Would love to win.

  61. Catherine November 8, 2013 at 9:13 am #

  67. traci November 8, 2013 at 9:49 am #

    New to this “crafty” thing but home with a two week old (2 older girls in daycare) and just made a version of your art hangers. Made 6 of them – 1 for each bedroom and 1 each for a hallway. They are so cute! For some, I made by hand. For the others, I used already painted wood pieces from JoAnn’s / Michaels, painting and glueing the spools between them. The girls are going to love them! Thanks!

  68. MichelleBell November 8, 2013 at 9:53 am #

    My love for quilts and sewing has come from my grandma who made me a quilt when I was younger. I loved it so much and was sad to have lost it in a move.

  69. Lynne B. November 8, 2013 at 9:59 am #

    I’ve sewn professionally for years, but have never experienced a felting machine. More info, if you please?

  70. Makala Clark November 8, 2013 at 10:00 am #

  80. Stephanie November 8, 2013 at 10:38 am #

    My grandmother, after seeing a pouting first grader who didn’t have her own jean jacket, disappeared to her basement and reappeared with a perfectly fitted jean jacket that she had even placed a rose appliquΓ© on. I didn’t appreciate it nearly as much as I do now. One piece of clothing I cannot get rid of.

  81. Shannon November 8, 2013 at 10:38 am #

    My favorite handmade gift was a quilt.

    Hand stiched quilt by my mother.

  83. Hurley November 8, 2013 at 10:50 am #

    My favorite handmade gift… It’s hard to choose. My mother made a lot of things for us growing up. But I think my favorite would actually be from my daughter. She made me canvas paintings which I still love to this day.

  84. jerri gunter November 8, 2013 at 10:52 am #

    Wouldn’t this make for a wonderful Christmas!?!

  106. Terry November 8, 2013 at 1:10 pm #

    My most favorite made Christmas gift would have to be the Christmas ornaments my children would make and so gingerly give me. Pre-Christmas, really, but still my favorite! Plus, I tend to be the one who makes things for others… Wouldn’t this make for a wonderful Christmas!?!

  107. phyllis henry November 8, 2013 at 1:13 pm #

    I cannot believe this wonderful opportunity. The giveaway is beyond mind-blowing. I’m also excited to find some new Facebook postings to follow about the art of sewing. I taught high school “home economics”, now called Lifeskills, for almost 40 years. I would love to win this package and offer sewing lessons from my home. Thank you for putting together such a great opportunity. Phyllis aka Becky Homecky.

    A set of crochet snowflake Christmas ornaments. I received them form a friend the first year I lived away from home. I lovingly hang them on my Christmas tree every year.

  132. Angela November 8, 2013 at 6:24 pm #

    I love a all the gifts my son has made me. A card he made telling me he loved is the best!!

  133. Nancy Clark November 8, 2013 at 6:24 pm #

    My favorite handmade gift came from my husband’s aunt. She made me a blanket that folds into itself and then tucks into a pocket on the back of the blanket to keep it stored nice and neat. I take this blanket EVERYWHERE I go. The best part about this blanket is probably not anything it was intended to be. I am always cold, so I use it a lot when we are traveling. (My husband sweats while I am shivering.) The pocket that is supposed to hold the blanket when it is folded up makes the perfect place to keep my feet. This way, I don’t have to worry about it sneaking up to leave my feet cold.

    I can’t tell you how many evenings I have curled up with the blanket on the balcony of a condo overlooking the ocean during our vacation over the 4th of July week. I would love to find the pattern to make more of these. I think everyone should have one!!! If I win this contest I would be set to make a lot of these blankets for my friends and family.

    Thank you for sharing this giveaway with us. Someone is going to be a very happy person when the winner is announced!

    My grandmother made me an handmade Irish knit sweater set for my son when he was born. I still have it and it is all white. It has the sweater, diaper cover, booties, hat, and blanket. She also used blue ribbon and put a bow on each item. I can change out the ribbon if I have a girl the next time. I love it.

    My uncle used to write me books and hand bind and cover them

  169. Lori November 8, 2013 at 7:19 pm #

    That is tough! Probably either a quilt my granny made me or a high chair, doll bed, doll playpen my grandpa made. There have been so many great ones, hard to choose. Which as an adult may be why my nov and dec are so busy cause the homemade gifts are best!

  170. Hannah November 8, 2013 at 7:20 pm #

  175. Mary-Walker Hall November 8, 2013 at 7:34 pm #

  178. Ann e November 8, 2013 at 7:38 pm #

  179. Jane McClure November 8, 2013 at 7:46 pm #

    Really excited about this giveaway. I love to sew for my family, especially my granddaughter. The serger would be great to make more professional looking seams. Also I just took up knitting and would have to add felting to my repertoire. It would be awesome to win this giveaway.

  201. Isabelle G November 8, 2013 at 9:14 pm #

    Hm…my favorite handmade gift was probably the crocheted pouch my aunt made for me at Christmas. I felt like such a cool kid walking around the fourth grade with a unique bag!

    Wow! This is a contest to beat all contests!

  206. Lisa Roussel November 8, 2013 at 10:01 pm #

    My favorite gift is the quilt my grandmother made for my high school graduation. I didn’t really appreciate how special it really was until I was older. And she made one for each of her 13 grand children at that particular milestone in our lives, so I feel connected not only to her, but to my cousins with this family tradition.

  207. Tricia Tanner November 8, 2013 at 10:05 pm #

    The embroidered baby blankets that both my sons received from my mom.

  230. Jonnie November 9, 2013 at 7:55 am #

    Lots of favorites, but a multi-colored granny square afghan comes to mind first. I was not a crocheter, nor was anyone in my family, but I had always admired the granny square afghan I saw in older relatives’ homes. My parents found someone to make the afghan I wanted and it is very special to me.

  231. Terry November 9, 2013 at 8:02 am #

    I received a hand-knitted baby blanket from my favorite aunt for the birth of my son. It became his “blankie” and is very special to both of us. Thanks for the giveaways!

    My favorite handmade gift received would be a “3-D” wedding anniversary card, for my husband and I, that was made by my daughter. It was a box shaped card made from post-it notes that was taped, glued, sparkled, hand drawn and told us how much she loved us.I have it displayed on my sewing table. She makes us a card every year. But this was the best!

  234. Pepper November 9, 2013 at 9:08 am #

  241. Nancy Coupland November 9, 2013 at 12:03 pm #

    My son made me a wooden plant stand which doubles as a small end table in shop class. He was in the 7th grade at the time…15 years later, I still use and love it!

  242. Leslie O'Donnell November 9, 2013 at 12:05 pm #

    My favorite handmade gift has to be the little clay goblin (sculpted, baked and painted) that my son made me, with his dad’s support. Jamie has Sensory Processing Disorder, and fine-motor work is very difficult, tiring and frustrating for him, but he really wanted to make one for me, and pushed through several hours of effort of artistic work, to do so. I was rather sick at the time, and he remembered hearing that my favorite movie to watch when I was sick, when I was a kid, was Jim Henson’s “Labyrinth”. He thought that a goblin (such as the movie is full of) would be a great ‘Get Well’ present to help me feel better. <3

  243. Christiana Lefebvre November 9, 2013 at 12:21 pm #

    My sister made a dress for me. It was beautiful.

  244. Nicole November 9, 2013 at 12:46 pm #

  257. Susan Johnson November 9, 2013 at 7:13 pm #

    The needlework pieces that my grandmother did for me are priceless.

    My favorite handmade gifts have come from my children. Whether they made something for me at school, or hand drew a birthday card for me. Im the only one in my family who hand makes things for others, so being able to teach my children the gift of giving a handmade item to others is precious.

    I loved the scarf that my cousin made me.

    My sister painted the prettiest little owl for me for Christmas last year. She was short on money. It means more to me than anything she could have purchased in a store.

    The best homemade gift I ever got was a quilt that my mom’s best friend made when daughter was born. We still have it after 19 years!!

    When I was little, my mom sewed me a “quiet book”. It was and still is one of my favorites. Grandkids look at it now!

    My favorite handmade gift was a picture frame with a collage of all my animal friends from my childhood. My first cat, our family dog, our second cat, and the two horses I grew up riding. It’s still hanging on my wall and makes me smile every time I look at it. Thanks Sis!

    My grandmother used to sew me so many wonderful presents. My most favorite was a beautiful blanket that she made me as a child. I still cherish it today.

    My great-grandmother made me dozens of Barbie dresses one Christmas. They were each designed for her and intricately sewn by hand. Twenty-five years later, my two daughters play with the same dresses. Great Gram died earlier this year, so I love that my girls get to enjoy her talents and thoughtfulness after her death.

      …oops, I meant they were designed *by* her.

    What a generous prize, thank you!
    The thought of having such amazing toys to play with positively makes me froth at the mouth! πŸ˜€

    And the Festive Season is such a great time to have one too – so many gifts that I’d like to make, not to mention stockings, and festive bunting, and table cloths and Christmas decorations!

    Whooooooo! πŸ˜€

    When I was about 5, my mom cross-stitched a pair of ballet slippers onto a blue jersey jumper for me to wear over my ballet clothes. I loved that dress & wore it twice a week until I grew too big for it. πŸ™‚

    Not really handcrafted in the traditional sense, but when my husband and I had been dating for a year, I received a mini photo album for my birthday from his mother. The first half was filled with pictures of him ranging from birth through high school graduation. The second half was blank, so that I could put in pictures of myself growing up over the years. It is one of my most treasured possessions.

    My Aunt Lula Maye hand-quilted a Raggedy Ann & Andy applique baby blanket – she is a stickler for detail and perfection. It’s a cherished piece.

    My favorite homemade gift is definitely the quilt my mother made me for my wedding that included fabrics from various clothing I’d worn while growing up. She was sure to include red and green in every block since I was born on Christmas. It’s so special to my family.

    When I was a little girl my Aunt Barbara would sew me a shoe box full of doll clothes for Christmas and then when I started playing with Barbies, I would get a shoe box of Barbie clothes. I was always so excited when Christmas came around to see what I would get.

  296. Valeri November 23, 2013 at 2:17 pm #

    I have received numerous favorite handmade gifts over the years: quilts, bags, food kits, rice packs. It would be so difficult for me to choose only 1, but this time of year I use my rice packs the most. πŸ™‚
