There are two category of people: who always arrives late closing gifts on Christmas Eve and who carves out time to make also the gift tag handmade, customized to the gift and the recipient.
Unfortunately I don’t belong to the second category, however, I always make something, just in time, in a hurry, but in time.
If like me, you wanted to make sweaters, scarves and hats on your own with knitting needles and crochet hooks, but you have not yet bought the wool. I must say that our good intentions have gone up in smoke.
But there are two very good solutions:
– Buy from artisans / maker / crafter / artists online or offline.
– Buy something (today is black friday!) and make a small object, but done with our hands and so much love, for example, these crochet mittens!
You can make two gloves, tie them to the extremity of a long chain and use it as a gift tag or crochet only one glove and apply a brooch on the back.
And why not decide to use them as placeholders for Christmas dinner? We can declined in the same colors that we chose to decorate the tree or in many different colors for each diners? Ok. I’m starting to think big. I have to stop, there is less than a month to Christmas!
The pattern to make the crocheted mittens is – only in Italian – on number 24 of Gli speciali di Casa da Sogno, Crea il tuo Natale (Nov 15 / Gen 16).
