    My grandpa crocheted scarves when I was in 5th or 6th grade. He died when I was in 7th grade, but I still have, and wear, his scarf!

  • Kris C. says:

    What an awesome giveaway! Imagine what fun one could have with a JAF gift card like that…..drool….As far as my favorite handmade gift, I’d probably have to go with the quilt my grandmother made when I graduated from college. It is awesome.

  • Amanda G says:

    My favorite handmade gifts were things we received at our baby shower: crocheted receiving blankets that were large enough that we are still using them with our now 2-year old, an afghan, a ring sling, and embroidered burp cloths.

  • Melissa Chambers says:

    Anything my kids make! But the one from when I was younger (a teen) was this fuzzy yellow sweater my grandma made me. It was so comfy, not trendy, but I didn’t care & wore it & wore it. I still have it somewhere.

  • Michelle Smith says:

    There have been a ton of handmade gifts that I’ve loved. The best would have to be from my mom, who has knitted, crocheted and sewed for all of us since we were young. Some of the standouts are her 3 dimensional teddy bear granny square crocheted blanket I received at the baby shower for my oldest, halloween costumes she made us when we were kids, using no patterns(monarch butterfly, tweety bird, sylvester the cat, and 2 of the seven dwarves, and the flower girl dresses she made me and my sister.

  • VickiT says:

    Mine was from my Grandmother. Sadly, she did not ‘give’ it to me as she died before the time came. She had sewn me a baby quilt for the little girl I was pregnant with at the time. She hand stitched the entire quilt but then I lost that baby at 5 1/2 months into the pregnancy. Then my next pregnancy a year later came, however she died before learning about this. (This was a boy) But, while clearing out all of her things after she died, my Mom found the box with the quilt. The box had my name on it and a hand written note inside for me so this gift came too late but was not appreciated any less than any gift I have ever received. It brought tears to my eyes at how excited she was to have her very first great grandchild and then died before I carried one to full term a year later.

  • garnet says:

    My favorite handmade gifts are quilts that were made for me by my grandma and friends when I got married. There is something so cozy about snuggling up in a blanket made by someone you love.

  • Christina Coyle says:

    My favorite is my quilt my mom made me as a child. I used it until it fell apart 15 years ago. I sure miss that blanket….

  • Alison says:

    Oh, last Christmas my Mom gave me a gorgeous embroidered snowman wall hanging. Its absolutely beautiful! The amount of work she did, embroidering it – its really big! And she is amazing at embroidery. Moms are the best!

  • Shannon C. says:

  • Jayme Waye says:

    A quilt my grandmother made for me when I was a teenager. I never fully appreciated it until I started sewing and realized how much goes into making a quilt. My daughter now uses it for her bed.

  • Charlene McClellan says:

    My aunt made me a necklace with a druisy stone. It is beautiful and I love it and every single time I wear it, somebody comments on how beautiful and unique it is.

  • Bekah says:

    My favorite handmade gift was a Kindle cover made for me by a super sweet lady. She even used her printer to print a picture on the fabric before she made the cover. How great is that?!

  • Karine Bordelon says:

    Ma grandmother used to make us socks for Christmas. My grandparents had 20 grandkids and not enough money to buy gifts for every one so she would knit those all year long and gave them to us on Christmas day. They were all grey with two stripes, either red, yellow or blue at the top. I wish I still had a pair!

  • Linda says:

    Crossing my fingers hard I win this package, it would really be a god sent to me, honestly! I am on a fixed income & trying to get my lil home biz running again, money is tight and this would really help me out.

    Nice generous giveaway you are doing, I know it cost you a lot out of your pocket to put this together to give to one of us, good luck everyone and bless you for doing this for others!

  • Renee A Davis says:

    My girlfriend from the Bay Area knits, every birthday she knits me a scarf, or gloves. I have so many beautiful scarves & gloves from her & cherish them along with loving wearing them…

  • Tracey says:

    A lovely knitting bag made and filled by “online” friends that I’ve not even met… they blessed me during a hard time.

  • Carolyn Howland says:

    I received a healing heart queen sized quilt from my online Yahoo quilt group, it wraps me in love when I put it around my shoulders. My friends all sent heart blocks together to be pieced, then on to another friend across the country to be quilted, then back across the country to be bound then sent on to be presented to me. This was an amazing gift of love.

  • Eleni S says:

    A friend of my late grandmother gave me a crochet lace table runner, which was the first to copy when i started crochetting myself! I still have both of them and love them!

  • Nancy Miller says:

    A scarf my daughter made me when she was going through a hard time in her like. Thanks for the chance at this give away!!

    • noreen says:

      Okay – forgot to answer the question… Favorite handmade gift ever received? That’s easy… anything that my boys bring home from school that they made during art class!

  • Niccole says:

    My favorite Christmas gift ever were the baby blankets my grandma crocheted for each of my kids! It was more a gift for me, since it meant so much! She has crocheted for years but now has arthritis so bad it hurts to do it. I just mentioned how much I’d love them for the kids and she worked so hard to make them before she truly can’t anymore!

  • Alisha says:

    My favorite gift was from my mom at my son’s baby shower. She made him 4 mini sized travel blankie’s to match his big blankie…Maybe it was all of the hormones, but it brought me to tears…

  • Laura says:

    When Cabbage Patch Kids first came out, they were so popular my parents couldn’t buy one, so my mom made a look-a-like doll for me that Christmas. Over the years, Jenny acquired lots of handmade clothes too! She was (and still is) one of my favorite dolls.

  • Melissa says:

    A decoupaged recipe box filled with favorite recipes and handmade dividers. It was a wedding gift from my old college roommate.

  • Loretta Aymond says:

    My favorite handmade gift that I have received is a set of hand embroidered 7-days dish towels from my mother the year that she passed away. She passed on December 3rd, but she had made sure that all her kids &you grandchildren had their Christmas presents before Thanksgiving. She embroidered around 36 sets if dish towels, she was one amazing lady! I still have not used them and it’s been 11 years.

  • Karla says:

    A flannel quilt from my Grandma made with scraps from shirts she made, many of which I remember my Dad and Uncle wearing.
