As you may know I love to give handmade gifts. I wanted to give a family gift that small children would enjoy as well as adults, so I had the idea of a personalized game. I made the game in cloth book form and found little peg people on a clever etsy shop naked peggies. You can buy the peggie people in natural wood or have the artist create a personalized set for you.

handmade christmas count down

sew mama sew is one of my favorite sites to visit, they have posted a handmade holidays master list. This list is wonderful for finding ideas for the right person...check it out.

I adapted this Toy Bucket into an Art Bucket by adding a crayon roll type pocket to the front instead of the toy pocket. Following this tutorial it sewed up quickly and the instructions were accurate, I think I will be making some more, and will definitely be tucking this pattern in the quick gift ideas box.
