The most meaningful gift I made for someone are the fisherman knit afghans I’ve made for children, family members and friends’ children. I’ve made 21 so far and will be starting what is probably the last one for my last grandson.
The most memorable gift I made was for my daughter in her senior year of high school. She took that quilt to college with her and then used it for many years after she moved to her own home. She said it always meant “love” to her.
The most meaningful gift I ever made was 35 zippered travel bags for the NIH Childrens Inn. My office crew filled them with toys and games for the resident children. But it’s hard to pick one gift really – having cross stitched a sampler for the aunt who taught me to sew, or designed a small purse for my mom to her requirements that she’s used to falling apart, or an upcycled denim wallet for my husband that’s endured longer than any leather one and survived camp outs and pools, or the dresses and costumes I’d made for my girls growing up. Very hard to choose one when they’re all made with love!
The most meaningful gift I made for someone is hard to say. I think it would be the little minky frog I made for my youngest grandson. Or maybe the big reading pillows for the older boys lasts year. I made matching aprons (mother/daughter) for my girls and their daughters for Christmas this year but it got postponed due to Covid (me). Hoping to celebrate this weekend. Looking forward to their reactions!
The most meaningful gift I made was some hats I crocheted for my sister when she lost her hair from chemo and radiation. Unfortunately, she lost the battle also.
The most meaningful gift I made for someone is finish quilts of people who have passed and giving to families.
The most meaningful gift I ever made for someone was a box of doll clothes for my grand daughter. We gave her a doll, her first, and I made several outfits. I will never forget the look of joy that Christmas when she opened up the present.
The most meaningful gift I have ever made for someone was a Christmas tree skirt for my grandmother. It was made of squares with each of her grandchildren’s handprints and signed names.
I’d not heard of this website before! I’m excited!
The most meaningful gifts I made were blankets & monster face pillows to match for each of my 11 grandchildren.
The most meaningful gift I made for someone was a quilt I made for a good friend. She loved a quilt I had hanging in my home so I made her a duplicate for her 80th birthday. It’s the only time I’ve ever seen her in tears.
Lap quilt for boyfriend
The most meaningful gift I made was raisin-filled sugar cookies for my dad’s birthday for the last several years of his life. My mom had dementia and was no longer able to make them for him. I know it’s not Sewing related but it was a labor of love.
The most meaningful thing I made for someone is the wedding veils for my 3 daughters weddings . They will always remember the memories of wearing something I made for them.
One of the most meaningful gifts I have made was when my youngest daughter left home. She was homesick and very far away,. I remade her favorite doll (new body) and new dress. When she received it she felt like she had a little piece of home to sit on her bed.
The most meaningful gift I made was actually made by my 10 year old granddaughter. I gave her a pattern and material to make an apron and a note that she was enrolled in Learn to Sew with Nana classes! She spent two days of her Christmas vacation with me learning the basics of sewing and she ended up with a cute little apron that she was so proud of!! Hopefully it will be a wonderful memory for her-I know if was for me!!
The most meaningful gift I made was a wedding dress for my very pregnant friend.
The most meaningful gift t’ve made someone is/are the I Spy quilts I made for grandchildren that included their name and photos of them as a newborn and as a toddler, family members, first home, and pet.
The most meaningful gift I ever made was an advent calendar for a former co-worker. I had made one to use at work years ago and she remembered that, and how much she enjoyed it.
“Le cadeau le plus significatif que j’ai fait pour quelqu’un est le trousseau de naissance du bébé d’une amie qui a eu beaucoup de problème pour avoir ce petit garçon, je lui avais fait notamment un beret sur lequel j’avais cousu un grelot , dés qu’ils arrivaient avec le bébé qui “sonnai” on savait que Dylan arrivait"
The most meaningful gift I made for someone was a scrapbook I made for my daughter. She played Belle in “Beauty and the Beast”. I had pictures from scenes and used her playbill to label the pictures.
The most meaningful gift I have made is a jogging suit for my oldest nephew when he was in grade school.
The most meaningful gift I made for someone is a bunch of dresses my sisters and I made for my Mom one year for Mother’s Day. We were teenagers and my mom rarely bought anything for herself. It was so much fun watching unfold dress after dress.
The most meaningful gift that I made for someone a crocheted item for my grandmother who had taught me the craft.
My neighbor’s 4 year old grand daughter showed me a doll she was given, had no clothes. I gave her several dresses that I made through the Pixie Faire patterns. The look on her face was precious.
The most meaningful gift I’ve made were some pillowcase dolls from our grandmother’s
The most meaningful gift I’ve made was a self drafted copy of a 1965 wedding dress that was in a Victorian style for my friends granddaughter. Got the unique sleeve on the first try!
The most meaningful gift I’ve ever made is food. I made a bunch of cookies and took them to a friend when her husband died. They were perfect for all her company. I make awesome food and show my love by serving it to others.
The most meaningful gift I have made someone was an evening gown for my mother that looked as good as a designed dress because It fit correctly.
The most meaningful gift I made for someone is leggings and tee shirt for OG doll that matched my granddaughter’s favorite outfit. She was so excited.
The most meaningful gift I ever made anyone is a memory pillow. I made one for each of us 3 kids out of my dad’s shirts after he passed away.
Made a Princess Belle dress for my 5 year old great niece with a matching Belle Doll Dress.
She lives on the west coast so they videoed her opening the box. I laughed and cried. Everyone ooh and aaah but her face was priceless.
I have made quilts for my friends babies.
A shawl for my grandmother. I was very new to knitting but I decided to take it on because she was always complaining of being cold. It was the first and last thing I knitted but she loved it. What makes it even more special is that after she passed away, it was given back to me. I use it for a blanket in an antique doll carriage.
My most memorable gift I made is the quilt I made for my daughters wedding!
I enjoy receiving the emails as I love to sew for dolls
The most meaningful gift I made for someone is either the baby bonnet with hand embroidery, or a set of mother-daughter matching aprons.
I make pillowcases for the grandchildren every year with a theme that they like.
