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!! ♥

Thank you.
Yeah she's... well... hmmm....... well we don't hang out outside of the baby(bf) group we go to. Lol mommy politics though- our kids get along well so I put on a smile and so does she.. hahaha

The other mom and I chat often and see each other often. :)

I'd love it knowing you made it yourself. If u think the one mom that u barely won't like it then she's a bitch then and doesn't need u to go to her kid's bday party :)



Hope all is well mommy. I think now I'm going to crochet a hat for my unborn son

I would find it cute. home made gifts take time to make and that's extra special.

I would think its awesome for a child of any age.

Personally if a friend thought it was cheap of me to put time and effort into a gift we might have a problem:)

For my daughter's first birthday a close friend's girlfriend made her banner with my dd's name and precious moments characters. I love it. It's been on the wall ever since. I know it took her forever to make and I greatly appreciate how much thought and effort she put into it. :) My dd is now 5.

I would love it.  Especially since it is homemade.  Work and time went behind the gift.  What is not to love?
