    Gift ideas for kids

    I am looking for some good ideas to make kids gifts for christmas. I have four grandchildren ages 2 thru 7, I have made quilts, duffle bags,& art caddys for them already. I love sewing for them and would like some other ideas what else I can make and for you to share your projects you have made.
    Thanks

    Jammies? Easy kind with either elastic or drawstring waist. Some nice flannel. Short ones or long ones.

    My granddaughters loved nightgowns and matching gown for the baby doll. I also made pillowcases per their request. They are older now, so I made lounge pants, a matching pillowcase, and purchased the top. They like these for sleepovers.

    I like holders for their I Pods, I Pads, laptops and books. For the girls, totes, coin purses and tissue holders for their bags. I make wall hangings from fabric with their favorite cartoon's or school logo's.

    I saw nice placemats that used a focus fabric, (maybe something that they like) and chalkboard fabric. The focus fabric was the frame and backing.

    If your grandchildren are girls, doll clothes is always a good gift. For my 3 oldest (school age) grandkids, they really like when I make them personalized lunch bags along with matching reusable sandwich and snack bags. Their moms also love the reusable sandwich bags as they are so easy to clean and saves money buying baggies.

    Make them pillowcases and use them as gift bags too. There are some tutorials on QB for Lego Matt, pillow/blanket, someone posted a link to pajama eater's pillow?

    One year for my nieces boys, I make a floor quilt that the print had a little town on it with streets. Bought some vehicles the right size to be on the roads on the quilt.

    What was aggravating is that she never thanked me. So far, the only kids beside my own to thank me has been my youngest son's friends when I made them pillowcases. Found some dragon fabric on sale and made a bunch. His friends got jealous so I had to make a lot of them. They all thanked me. These guys were late teens, early 20s!

    Hi, a great gift that I know your kids will always remember. What we did for our kids was get them drawn into their own comic book. Here the website: http://autobiocomics.com/. I hope you find the right gift.

    Take care
