This idea comes from Snappy Tots (be sure to check out her page on this, there is a lot of great stuff on it). The idea is to work on gifts year round where they are ready to go during the holidays, or whenever you need them. How many of us end up working on last minute gifts? This is a great idea to prevent that from happening. She posts free patterns every month and challenges people to make at least one of them as a gift for someone on their list.
The problem is, I don’t have a huge list of people on my gift giving list and so far most of the patterns she has posted will not work for people on my list. So, I have decided to start adding patterns here (all thumbnails will be linked to the pattern page) that I can, and probably will, use. Maybe something here will help someone else out.
