I did make some gifts this year. One of may favourites was this knitted DS lite case for my little sister.
Inside it has 4 pockets for games and fastens with two little buttons. You can find the pattern here for free at crayondistaster.
I also got my own creative juices flowing with a gift for my friend Ben. He's a big kid and loves the CBBC puppet Oucho. I've never seen it but I've heard it's entertaining. Anyway, what better present than an Oucho. Using this picture of the cactus puppet I made my own version.
