Handmade Holidays: What are you making?

It is the beginning of November, and I still haven't decided exactly what I'm going to be making for the holidays.  After last year I decided that I'd try to save myself some stress and just buy my gifts this year, but I don't think that is going to happen.

I have in mind to make Christmas pajamas for the boys, and I have a couple of  project in mind for Clark, but I keep on adding more and more items to my list.

Sew Mama Sew is running a handmade holiday series on their blog.  Each day their featuring some free tutorials and patterns from the internet.  Last week my Fleece Toddler Slippers were featured on their Passion for Relaxation post.

If you are looking for some great handmade gift ideas, you're sure to find some inspiration on their blog.

So what holiday gifts will you be making?  Are you making holiday outfits, toys, or pajamas?  I'd love to hear what you have on your list.

I'll be making slippers, pancake mix and homemade syrup for my moms; lounge pants for my kids and bread for my dads. I like to make shopping totes to put the gifts in :)

oh man, those look comfy. I need them in size 8, please. Thanks so much. :)

I'm making my mom a quilt for her sewing machine (from get your craft on), a cupcake pin cushion for my sister in law, and possibly my mom (from obsessively stitching), and I already refashioned a couple t's for my sister during general conference. I'm doing things straight from my fabric stash this year, as it's been a very expensive year for us already! :)

Congrats on the feature! I'm making my sister a circle skirt and that's all I know so far. :)

I've already made a pair of the slippers for my little guy, as my test run. They turned out so well and were so easy that I've made a pretty pair for my step-daughter (I used my printer/copier to enlarge the pattern provided by 120% for girls size 10 and 130% for boys size 1-2). I'll probably make a pair for my mom. Then there'll be jackets for the two big kids...and I'm stumped past that.
