We posted this image on our Instagram last week (@thetinthimble) with the caption, “Can you guess what Hannah is whipping up with these adorable fabrics we sent her? We can’t wait to get the finished pieces back in time for holiday gifts!” We were so excited to get the package from her earlier this week. Within it were unique, quirky, and adorable, handmade aprons!
With the Holidays looming in the not-so-distant future, it’s time for us to rub our palms together and start producing gifts! This time of year is great for our creative productivity because we start thinking outside of our usual box. We start to use colors we don’t normally like, we incorporate patterns or textures into our products that we think will suit others, more than ourselves.
We usually crank out gift items like aprons, Christmas ornaments, felted clothing by the closet-full and Christmas stockings to name a few.
But we want to know, what sort of gift items would you like to see us produce? And what beautiful gifts are YOU creating for your loved ones? Please share with us, we always love to hear feedback from our customers and students and would love to know if our students will be using any techniques we taught them to hand make gifts this year.
