Make This Year a Crocheted Holiday!

Christmas for crocheters is a busy time! Handmade gifts and crocheted pieces are a great way to give something extra meaningful. I know my kids LOVE anything that is red, green, sparkly and has to do with Christmas, so I usually try to crochet something for them every year.

Two years ago, I made Christmas tree gift cardholders for their teachers and the year before that, a Christmas star banner to hang. As for this year, I am not quite sure yet, but I am open to any suggestions for gifts.
