Salt dough gift tags
I use a simple recipe of 1 cup salt, 1 cup warm water and 2 cups flour. Letter stamps are used to write on them before baking.
This was a staple gift for neighbours last year.
If something stays in one place for a long time in my house there is a real risk that I will crochet a cover for it such is the extent of my love for this craft. It's so easy to learn and great if you are impatient and need to be able to produce things in hours rather than weeks (or years in the case of my yellow knitted jumper).
Natural teething rings
When you have a toddler and a baby you inevitably get to know a lot of other toddlers and babies so I have been making a lot of different gifts. Here is my favourite gift to give a baby.....a yarn covered teething ring. You can buy them here!
