When the latest issue of Mollie Makes dropped through my door I had an epiphany. The free kit with Issue 34 is an adorable 70s style doll and they suggested it would be a great stocking filler... well yes... it would! My eldest daughter would love it. And that got me thinking, I know I've got more of those kind of things lying around. Turns out I've got thirteen of those free kits from different craft magazines. Thirteen?! I seem to have developed a magazine addiction along with the fabric one.

What a waste to have those supplies lying around while I'm trying to think up gifts to make for teachers. If I have time I'd love to also make little fabric baskets to put them in but if not they'd be just as cute tied up to a bar of chocolate! Some of them would be ideal for this and some others my kids would love to have at Christmas.

So in the spirit of using what you have and creating some extra little gifts would you like to join me? If you have any of those free kits now is the perfect time to make them up!

I've created a blog page and link for us to add our free kit makes. The link is now open and will stay open until the end of December. I would appreciate help getting the word out so please grab the button and add it to your blog:

Charm About You

Of course you don't have to give them away and if you've made any of those free kits recently then feel free to add them to the link party - I know I've seen a couple around.

I don't know how many I will be able to do but it will be fun to try some different projects and none of them are very difficult makes.

I'm starting with an easy quick one (I hope!). The oilcloth coin purse from Issue 24 of Mollie Makes:

You can link up with makes using free kits from any craft magazine, I also have some from Crafty and one from Love Patchwork and Quilting.

I'm hoping I'm not the only person with a collection of free kits waiting to be made!
