Home made placemats - either using the kids artwork, or if for kids then with their name on and then laminated.

Pinterest ;)

But I like doing stencilled t-shirts, pocket waldorf dolls, needle-felted dolls, wet-felted balls with a bell inside for babies, and whatever takes my fancy on pinterest! :lol:

nova, do you know where do you get good quality blank t-shirts for stencilling?

I am planning on making little coin purses, have made lined zip ones before but this year I am going to make them with the purse frames (first time, wish me luck!)

Not nova, but try here, especially the sale stuff. You can get good quality tees for $4-5. http://ascolour.co.nz/shop/sale.html
