I love to make things myself. Food,crafts, anything. One of the big ways that I am trying to be thrifty is by making gifts for people instead of buying gifts.
I have been toying with various ideas for cousin gifts. My latest idea is ornaments with their names on them. Today I whipped up a prototype (without any colorwork) using leftover sock yarn. I love how it turned out and this may become a good way to use up the little bits of leftover sock yarn.
