Summary

Have you ever wanted to craft a gift for a friend or family member, but found you didn’t have the time or even know where to start? Make It Yourself magazine presents Handmade Gifts, combining all the beautiful, handcrafted, and heartfelt offerings you could compile on Pinterest into one compact and approachable book. Handcrafted Gifts is packed with projects for makers of all types, skill levels, and tastes. After trying your hand at some of these enticing projects, you’ll never want to give a gift certificate again!

Giving someone a handmade gift shows that you put in more thought and effort than a purchased gift.

No matter how eagerly they may embrace technology, they proudly wear the badge of “maker”—someone who loves creating things by hand.  

Each of the projects in Handmade Gifts is presented with a finished image; step-by-step instructions, illustrations, and photos; and corresponding patterns where necessary. The look and feel of the book puts a fresh spin on traditional crafting with youthful, on-trend DIY fashion, accessories, and decor.
