Homemade FE gifts - Part 2

I see the Homemade FE gift thread was officially closed! WOW 249 pages of wonderful ideas! Since I didn't find a new thread for it, and it is great to be able to see what everyone is making for the FE exchange, I hope we can continue the thread here. Carry on posting fantastic ideas and photos!

The key fobs that were in the last post are amazing. You did a great job with them!

For anyone wishing to look back at the previous Homemade FE gifts thread here is the link: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1980639

We gave out magnets, calendars, bookmarks, pirate creeds and post cards as some of our homemade FE gifts.

Hi there. For those who asked, the key fobs were much easier than I had expected. Using the 7/8" ribbon, I fused it to 1 1/4" webbing with 7/8" Heat n Bond, then stitched along both sides of the ribbon with matching thread on top and webbing colored thread in the bobbin.

Using a rotary blade, I cut the length to 11" and stitched the two sides together 1/4" from the ends. The key fob hardware then clamps to the stitched end covering that stitching. For ease of handling, I worked on sections of 44" at a time.

Hi KarlaG4Kids, thanks for starting another thread. I have a request if possible... could you put a link to the original thread in the first post to make it easy for people to look back through like on the magnet threads?

Original here: Homemade FE Gifts Photo Thread

TIA!

For our recent cruise, I made magnets for each room (mostly I gave 2 princesses and 1 Mickey):



Pendants for the women and older girls:



And Mickey and Minnie ears for the younger kids:



I couldn't come up with something homemade for the men and older boys, so I gave the men Mickey-themed calendars or planners, or little Spanish-English dictionaries, and the older boys got either Disney word searches or movie candy. I also found a bunch of High School Musical things for one young man who I'd heard loved it. We had so much fun participating in this!

Yay! By starting the Part 2 of this, I actually can follow and remember what page I stop on and easily go back to it (for now at least )

Thanks for keeping it going! And, I do like the key fobs too! Can't wait to see what others will continue to post!

Everything you made was awesome! Do you mind telling me what program you use to make all of these great personalized gifts? I would love to do something like this, but have been unable to make them so far with the programs I have or at least know I have!
