how would you feel if.... *pic pg 20*pg27* UPDATE

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!! ♥

    I would love it. It's very thoughtful and you took time to make it. Better than a gift card.

    I would think it was a very sweet gift. Even if you brought my child a homemade stick puppet I would be thankful that you got them something.

    DS godmother hand makes everything and we love it. Shows sentimental value and that you took the time to do the craft and make the gift.

    These are the hats my grandmother made for monkey. He loves the monkey hat and it looks more adorable on him than in the pic but I don't post pics of the kids.

    I adore gifts that people make. A lady who works in my dads office made a beautiful quilt for dd when she was born. She embroidered her name and birthdate on it. It is something I will keep forever. To me, things that are bought don't really have as much thought put into them.

    Are you kidding? Any homemade gifts we get are loved the best. Time and love went into them.
