    Thank you, I did make them using Bali Pops. It is a very easy pattern.

    Hi....like you, my husband and I are struggling for gift ideas for our daughters aged 26 and 23 .......but I came upon this lovely book called dear mum, from you to me (they also do dear dad, from you to me....to a grandchild etc.) basically it is a book that asks lots of questions about my life...who my friends were when I was at school, how did I meet their father, what jobs and hobbies I enjoy etc....then it asks how I felt when I found out I was having them, what I am proud of....so on......and by answering all the questions gives a real insistence into my life and feelings for them.
    My girls know how much they are loved because we tell them often, but I thought a hand written book that they can keep would be great.......I wish my mum had done it for me.....I would have treasured every page.
    We have bought two...one from a mum and one from a dad.....we will split some of the pages and write about both girls........I then hope to make them quilted book bags for them to keep them in.....I am hoping that they will like them.

    How about a 'quilted ornament'? Quick to do and fun and you can get very creative with trimmings. I found a you tube video on them (there are several). I have even sold a few which paid for all my materials plus.

    Last year I made microwave bowl holders & oven dresses for the women & pillow cases for all the men grand kids & nieces & nephews, GT nieces & nephews. They went over really big with everyone. The men in the family got specialty pillowcases & loved them. The men even liked the microwave bowels. All our friends got the same & I have ended up with lots of orders for making them & ended up making a few $ off them. Just finished an order for 24 of them. :~) This year I am making table hot pads & coasters out of 1/2 inch strips of scrap fabric wound around cloths line rope & zig zaged to make them round plus dress holders for plastic bags. All of these are fast & easy to make.

    Not the same but I will share this. I made all grand daughters (5) Christmas stockings when they were young. Each year I purchased a sterling charm that represented something that was important in their life that year (cheerleading, speech, b ball, angel, Bible). James Avery was my source for the charms. I sewed this charm on their stocking and they were left with me each year until they all turned near 16. That year I purchased the silver bracelets and had all the charms mounted.
    I might add that the charm was not their gift from me each year..just something for them to look forward to in the future. I wanted them to be old enough to take care of them and not leave them in a gym locker. lol
    I am glad I did it years past for the price of silver has gone up so much now.
