Christmas Gifts I've Made #3 (Boot cuffs and Jazzy clothespins)

Sweater for boot cuffs

Christmas is just around the corner so I got busy making easy gifts for the oldest daughter this past week.  I was excited when I seen this post on how to make boot cuffs -it was easy and I knew just what old sweater to use.   I even had the buttons!

all finished boot cuffs

I decided that lace wasn't needed with the print on this sweater. So these boot cuffs where done in a matter of minutes. 

Jazzy clothespins

After hanging a few clothes on oldest daughter's clothesline in the basement I decided she also needed some jazzy clothespins.  I just covered them with a little duck tape and gave them a modern look. These will be staying inside -not sure how they would hold up outside. Really, I'm not sure how they will hold up inside -but don't they look cute?  I had to do something with the tape I got on sale Black Friday!  

I put the clothespins, a couple of drying mats, dishtowels, and a couple of dish scrubbies (I have one to make yet) in a box for her.   I guess this will be her house present.  

What Christmas gifts have you made this year?
