Much of the items that I make to give at Christmas are sewn, so it was nice to take a break from sewing and dream up something different. I love the thoughtfulness of someone making up a gift basket tailored to your likes. There is something very special and unique about it. So this weekend, I made up three:
Breakfast Gift Basket
The pancake mix is just a blend of all the dry ingredients sealed into a ziplock bag. I whipped up the little white bag to place it all in and printed out the 'Grandma's Pancake Mix' label using this tutorial for printing on fabric. Sharpie straight onto fabric would also work just as well.
Little Girls Gift Basket
The next gift basket was aimed at a girl with an interest in baking/cooking. I made a really simple little ruffle apron and included a timer, measuring spoons and Chocolate chip cookie mix in a jar recipe
I found this great website for gift basket ideas there are so many wonderful ideas and another good resource when you are making food to go in the gift basket is this website which allows you to make your own printable recipe cards for free.
and now...back to the sewing...
