Fleece Navidad - Easy Handmade Gift Guide for Everyone on Your List

There are as many reasons to give handmade for the holidays as there are Crayolas in the box (you know, the big one with the sharpener on the back). A handmade gift shows you put care and thought into the gift, can be customized for the recipient, and can save you a ton of money. It passes along a thoughtfully made, quality item rather than something plastic from a factory overseas. It increases awareness and appreciation for handmade. It lets you knock something off your to-do list while doing something you love (almost feels like cheating, doesn't it?)  I don't know about you but I'd rather sit at my sewing machine, creating pretty things while listening to my favorite podcasts than tromp around the malls listening to the noise coming out of Wet Seal. Best of all, it gives you a chance to show off how very crafty you are.

Convinced to give handmade but not sure what to give? Here is a DIY Gift Guide to give you gift ideas for everyone on your list.
