My favorite night of Hanukkah at our house is the self-instituted make-it night, where the gifts we give are the gifts we make. I LOVE crafts. I'm just not that good at making them, being too impatient for some of the finer details. Fortunately, I've never let that stop me.
Here are the things I made the kids this year:
Hopefully you can recognize these guys without a label. My kids, at least, knew who they were!!
This is a skirt made from fabric created by the amazing Heather Ross. I used this free Lazy Days Skirt Pattern, which allows even people like me to look as if they know what they're doing.

This week my daughter asked for the newest fashion trend at her elementary school. I almost WISH she'd asked for a pair of Nikes or Hello Kitty Headband or something like that. But nope, she wants HAND-SANITIZER. The kind you can hang from your backpack. "But MOM." she said. "Almost all of the girls have their own hand-sanitizer." And just like that, my holiday gift problems are solved. Thanks H1N1!
