Have you ever tried making your kid's clothes? For little ones, it's simpler. Older kids obviously tend to have their own ideas, and generally want to be cool. So, unless something handmade is cool at the moment, you're probably not going to have much luck. For babies and small children though, sewing their clothes can be a great way to save money as well as to give a gift from the heart. I never was talented enough to sew all the kid's clothes we needed, but I did make them some things. I felt like I really accomplished something when they turned out well.
