So I managed to squeeze in itty bits of handmade goodness into this year’s eid. I made a few gifts for my family to give them on the last day of Eid when we came together as a family. I dabbled in a variety of different craft techniques too, including sewing, fabric painting, crochet, wood burning, and painting :). For my Mom I made a fabric roll to hold her writing pens. My daughters and I also made quite a few totes bags. One for their grandma with each of their 3 handprints on it in the shape of a heart in the center, saying: “We ❤ Grandma”. And two more handpainted totes bags, one for my niece and sister. The granny squares, which I was slowly crocheting along, I was planning to use in a lap quilt, but the process was taking much too long. I only had half as many squares needed to complete a baby blanket, let alone a lap quilt, so I instead opted to make a winter scarf for my sister. For one of my brothers I made a recycled jean pocket wall hanging. I hoping he can hang some of his doodads from his bunkbed or on the wall. I wood burned two things, a wooden mixing spoon for my baking-loving Mom, and the wood handle of a super cool pocket knife/hammer I got for my brother. Unfortunately I was in such a rush to get everything wrapped and head out the door, I didn’t get a picture of it all. But here’s what I did get 🙂 Also my eldest made a super cute sheep piñata!
