Help deciding on gift for teen
I am stumped here. My sister is turning 17 soon and I would like to make her something. The problem is...I have no clue what to make.

Anyone have any suggestions as to what to make for a teenager?

Thanks

There are several cute cloche patterns floating around the 'net for free, if she's into hats.

Maybe a nice felted purse with a few goodies in it?

Uhm..it really depends on what she likes, I guess!

If she is into purses, I would suggest a felted purse, like a booga bag.
I love mine!

A shrug. They seem to be all the rage right now. And there are free patterns for them all over the place.

I'm about to turn 19 (two weeks! lol) and I've been really into scarves and hats for the last couple of years. Everyone's been giving me scarves for my birthdays for years...I'm going to attribute that to being born in November. :P
I appreciate it so much more now that I'm living in frigid New York.

How about fingerless gloves/wrist warmers? they look purty hip 17 or not.
