how would you feel if.... *pic pg 20*pg27* UPDATE

Posted by   + Show Post
Someone brought a home made gift to your child's birthday party?

We're broke. Our bills are paid, but atm we have nothing for little extras. So, what can I do for the back to back parties this weekend??

I decided to crochet them hats. Both girls are turning 1. I already have the supplies....

I feel bad though... :-/ like they might think I'm cheap or something. One mom won't care- we are good friends and she knows money is tight.. the other? We barely know each other- but our kids get along well. Both moms are in a different tax bracket (to put it simply)

So, would you find it tacky?

*update*
Both moms loved the hats! Thank you ladies for building my confidence on the matter. Because of the overwhelming support, I am now setting up a shop!! Thank you!! ♥

Or she could add a cute knitted flower like she did on the other one near the rim of the hat. That would really set it apart and make it tearfully cute :)

Not at all. I'd love it- a handmade gift shows so much more thought and consideration and love than some toy bought at the store! You should be proud that you have the skill to make a lovely gift:) I personally would find it very kind that someone took the TIME to do such a nice thing for my kids.

Yeah I see that point. Well I think the gifts are super cute. Sometimes you worry about giving homemade gifts but so many people have no creativity and are just sooo amazed by gifts that are sometimes so simple. Like my bows... Oh man, 15 minutes to make lol. But people just gush over them lol
