I didn't feel like thinking too much, so went exploring on the web and found the neatest site with tutorials.
One thing I wanted to make was their owl bookmarks. Very easy, wool and blanket stitch. I changed the eyes to buttons and messed up my placements, but what else is new;) I still have to add something to the long part, might stitch the recipients name going down. I thought it best to show them before I do that;)
If you would like to make some yourself or find some other great ideas for gift giving, check out Wee Folk Art. There are lots of tutorials and I love the eye glass case with the birds. Now I need to practice up on my stitching. I would also like to use yarns and pearl cottons, but they do not go through the fabrics with the big needles I have. I would love suggestions on how other's use larger threads in their pieces. I have done couching, but i want to be able to sew it into the fabric.
