Handmade Gift – Beaded Necklace

Ok, friends, this is the first post in a little series I’m doing in the next couple of weeks on some simple handmade gifts you can make.

These are gifts I made last Christmas. And they’re mostly for women. Sorry, guys. I’m not very good at making handmade stuff for men. It doesn’t come as naturally for me.

Anyhow. This is a necklace I made for my sister. I think it turned out pretty well, but I had some frustrations making it, so hopefully you can learn from my mistakes!

Let’s break it down.

Polka Dot Elephant

Since last month was devoted to Filipino Food, I thought I should post something not related to food in any way. 🙂

I made this way back in February, actually, but haven’t had a chance to post it yet. Until now.

I made this for Little Man’s friend, Olive. It was her birthday. Yay, birthdays!

Elephant Onesie

Last week was a really busy week. Good, but busy. One of the things that went on last week was a baby shower. Yay, babies!

So, of course, I had to make something. The parents have decided to wait until the baby is born to find out its gender, so I had to keep the onesie neutral.

Their registry looked like they were going for a jungle theme for the nursery, so we put a gift together to match. One thing we got for them was a crib sheet that had a green elephant with a blue ear, and it was the perfect addition to the otherwise lion & giraffe-heavy gift.

It’s funny, because I was already planning to make an elephant shirt for the other big event last week, so I ended up making 2 elephants, but they’re very different. More on that one later.

The Quiet Book Blog

Hey everyone! You can catch me today over at the quiet book blog, talking about the book I made for Little Man. You’ve probably seen all you want to see about it on this site, but you should definitely check out Jocelyn’s other posts by some very talented folks. There is a ton of inspiration to be found there, and I only wish it had been around when I was making mine!

Anyway, you can check out my little interview here and then explore some other amazing projects! Thanks, Jocelyn!
