For those who love to knit, consider making sweaters for the family. You can also make them for friend, as well. Choose neutral colors for a gorgeous style and stay away from patterns. We all know how the old Christmas joke goes. Receiving less than pretty knitted sweaters from an aunt or grandmother is a less-than exciting thing. However, when you stick with neutral solid colors and flattering styles they'll be sure to let them! Find the best fabric in Portland to make them with at Josephine's!

For those who love technology, consider making a tablet cover! You might have to find out in advance what type of handheld device they have to make this work well. To learn more about how to make a tablet cover, visit our previous blog post.

You can even make cell phone covers, as well. These are great for protection. You can choose a water resistant fabric in Portland or something that will help with shock absorbency should the phone be dropped.

There are tons of different fun and exciting gifts to make for your loved ones this Christmas! Be sure to start early and keep a goal in mind.
