handmade sweetness

As we head towards Christmas season, I've been thinking about gifts. I love the idea of homemade presents, and I especially love ones that are awesome in and of themselves, not just for sentimental reasons.
Some of my favorite gifts have been from great friends who like to share their greatness with our family in the form of one-of-a-kind accessories for our girls. Here are a few that have brightened many an outfit.

Jennifer's creations

she should go into the bow business for sure.

And Molly's mittens, which she made for our big girl last winter.

I need a matching pair!

If you're looking for ideas for unique presents for babies and ladies, here are a few of my favorite Etsy folks who have mastered the handmade trade.

Whole Grain Baby

besides being an awesomely creative seamstress, she's a mother of 4. You can check out her blog here.

All the Numbers

she makes some of the most beautiful children's things I've seen. Santa, we'll take the whole lot!

Glass Beach

I've bought 2 of her clutches and can vouch for the great quality and awesome service.

Kate W Designs

Fun designs with fantastic fabrics. Add them to the list.

Garden House Boutique

I have many more favorites that I'd love to share in future posts, but these should get your gift-giving wheels turning. Hope your week is off to a great start!


  1. Um, I am in love with Molly and her mittens.

  2. Molly how did you make those gloves.. they look like mini boden pieces. Leah don't be surprised if those mittens go missing after I happen to visit. dananana

  3. Kathleen. I'd be happy to make your little bunnies some mittens --I just need drawings of their hand sizes......

  4. Chiming in... Molly, you totally need to go on Etsy and begin selling selling!! I'd buy a pair in a heartbeat! Leah, as always, great links. You are so inspiring!!
