how would you feel if.... *pic pg 20*pg27* UPDATE
October 8, 2012 at 6:13 AM
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!! ♥

    Golly, I'd be seriously touched if someone took that kind of time to make my child a present! I would probably keep the item forever .

    I think it's better to receive home made gifts because its the thought that counts. Aside from that, they are 1. So they're not really going to care as much as like a 4-6 year old would.

    Ya I'm not worried about the kids. Lol one signs 'hat' and points to them every time she sees them. Its adorable.

    This!

    My DH's old co worker crocheted my son a blanket when he was born. To me that was the best gift, because she made it. I never questioned whether it was because she was broke. Never thought of it until I read this post and he is 6y/o. I still have it in my room where the kids can't destroy it. :)

    Homemade gifts are my favorite. They show the giver actually put time and thought into the gift, and that means a lot.
